Wellington-based insurtech Montoux welcomes the technical expertise of Scott Houston to its Board of Directors.
WELLINGTON, New Zealand (June, 2019) - Montoux is thrilled to welcome seasoned technology expert Scott Houston to its expanding Board of Directors. The latest addition to the Wellington-based insurtech’s board was announced during a private investor event last week.
Scott has been a prominent member of the New Zealand tech scene for nearly two decades. He’s known as the founder and CEO of Green Button, which sold to Microsoft in 2014. Scott also served as the CTO of Weta Digital and, most recently, as CTO of ARANZ Geo (now known as Seequent).
Scott brings a new area of expertise to the Montoux Board, with his technical experience in delivering large-scale software solutions. Outside of his extensive experience in high-level roles within New Zealand’s tech world, Scott is fascinated by AI and its future impact on the industry he knows so well.
On joining Montoux, Scott says he’s excited to lend his valued knowledge and industry insight to the growing insurtech company. “I’m looking forward to sharing my experience on the technical side of the market and contributing to Montoux as a member of its Board of Directors. It will be wonderful to work alongside so many talented people and watch the company continue to expand and develop in new markets around the world.”
Scott Houston is fourth, and newest, member of Montoux’s Board of Directors. He joins the impressive, existing line-up of Serge van Dam, Charles Hett, and Sam Knowles - who recently ranked first on The New Zealand Herald's Directors of the Decade list.
