Mark Cliff and Andy Hawkes join Worry+Peace advisory board


Worry+Peace, the reviews-led marketplace for insurance, today announce that senior insurance figures Mark Cliff and Andy Hawkes have joined their Advisory Board.

Mark Cliff, recently appointed Chairman of Avid Insurance services, has a range of non-executive leadership roles across the sector.

Andy Hawkes, who founded Evolution Underwriting Group, has been CEO of Cardinus Risk Management for nearly 13 years and is a Partner of THB Group.

They join former XL Caitlin senior executive Paul Jardine on the Advisory Board, which supports Worry+Peace as they continue to develop their business. 

The insuretch’s proposition – which has continued to flourish and attract new users this year despite the pandemic - uses a custom-built method feedback platform to give providers deeper insight into their customers' views and experiences of dealing with their business. 

The business has set itself the challenge of putting the insurance sector “under one roof” for the first time, and providing tools that allow users to unlock, understand and fully exploit the customer insight provided by the platform.

Bolstered by these latest high profile appointments, the Advisory Board will focus on helping  Worry+Peace identify industry needs and exploit opportunities, as well as being advocates for the platform and the solutions it can provide.

Mark Cliff said: “Worry+Peace is building a truly unique platform that I believe has the ambition, potential and strategy to help our sector in a genuinely exciting way. I look forward to adding value through the insight I bring from my previous and ongoing experience in the sector.”

Andy Hawkes said: "I've been aware of Worry+Peace for a while, and I have every confidence there is a potent edge to the concept - it will be good for buyers and providers in this sector to have a platform like this. I am delighted to play my part." 

Worry+Peace James York said they were developing a “game changer” that would offer retail and commercial providers the chance to get far more out of feedback than they can from existing star ratings platforms. 

“We’re under no illusion about the ambition and magnitude of the task, he said. “But having focused our efforts on onboarding providers to the tools already built, we believe we’ve found a way to scale the proposition without adding even more unnecessary marketing spend.

"I'm delighted that such fantastic advisors, like Mark and Andy, can look at the early progress we've made, and visualise the endgame, which is to help both buyers and providers get more value."
