Embroker (San Francisco), a digital platform aimed at simplifying the purchase of business insurance, has announced the appointment of Ben Jennings as Chief Executive Officer, who served as the company’s Chief Revenue Officer during the past four years. Following the departure of Embroker’s founding CEO last year, the company’s board conducted an extensive internal and external search during which it became clear that Jennings was the right fit to lead the business forward, according to a statement of the company. Jennings assumes the CEO position and a seat at the company’s board effective immediately.
