NEW YORK CITY - Geoff Keast, previously SVP of Market Development at Montoux, has been tapped to head up its U.S. business as CEO of North America.
Keast built up his reputation as a growth leader for multiple enterprise tech companies in the finance space, before joining Montoux in 2016.
The past year has seen Keast become an integral part of the company’s progress into the U.S. market, establishing a solid value proposition and kickstarting the development of its first suite of products for the region. Now, with an ambitious year of rapid growth planned for Montoux, the company saw the need for an executive lead in the region.
Keast was the obvious choice according to founding director and CEO of the Asia-Pacific region, Klaas Stijnen. “Geoff has been an essential part of the development of our U.S. business, building up a wealth of key relationships and industry knowledge that would be hard to match.”
Keast is excited about the year ahead “I’m thrilled to take on the role of CEO for Montoux in North America. Until now we’ve been doing so many exciting things that we just couldn’t talk about. Now we’re at the stage where we get to share what we’ve built with the industry, and can start making a real difference in the way life insurers develop and price products. Seeing the things we’ve been able to do in Asia-Pacific; I can’t wait to do that here.”
