GloveBox, a Denver-based InsurTech has announced that Scott McNealy, co-founder of Sun Microsystems (acquired by Oracle in 2010), has joined its board of directors. GloveBox aims to simplify insurance policy access for consumers by aggregating policy documents, regardless of carrier, in one centralized location.
“Customer experience is vital to the reputation of a company,” comments McNealy. “With phones and computers being the focal point of our world, there is no choice but to conform to meet those needs. GloveBox brings an ultimate solution to an industry that is still adjusting to technology adoption through consumer education and accessibility.”
McNealy’s appointment comes as phase two of the GloveBox app is under development and the vendor has secured multiple new insurance carrier clients, according to a GloveBox statement.
“Gaining the trust and support of someone like Scott not only gives us a significant boost internally but ultimately helps us get that much closer to achieving our mission of improving the insurance industry,” comments Andy Mathisen, CMO GloveBox. “With his expertise at the round table, we get a sense of how this company should make decisions and evolve.”
