Wilson brings nearly two decades’ experience to the role and joins from Old Mutual’s Latin American division, where he served as Chief Financial Officer.
In his new role Wilson will lead Ethos’ underwriting efforts, focused on managing risk while maximising efficiency and ease of use for consumers and carrier partners.
“Ethos is building a wholly new model for life insurance, from the ground up. We need the best on our executive team to accomplish that at scale and give millions of families the protection they need,” said Peter Colis, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder at Ethos.
“Brett’s deep industry expertise and passion for closing the nationwide coverage gap will be invaluable as we embark on Ethos’ next chapter. We’re excited to welcome him to the leadership team.”
Commenting on his appointment, Wilson said, “Having worked in the insurance industry for nearly two decades, I can see the huge opportunity that a modern, agile, insurtech company like Ethos has to make a major impact on millions of lives.
“Ethos is aimed at defining a new era of life insurance, one built with ethics, technology, and simplicity at its core. I am thrilled to be joining a team that wants to protect the next million families while pushing the industry forward.”
