Goji New and Former CEO Share the Same Views Re. Agents
Boston-based car and home insurance aggregator Goji has finally announced its new CEO – Peter Breitstone, a former senior executive at Insureon, Aon, and Zurich. Peter succeeds CEO Steve Kezirian (2015-2017), who succeeded interin CEO James Ermilio. Recall: Goji, formerly known as Consumer United, was established by Justin Dangel in 2007. It has since raised over $89M from Thayer Street Partners, Spark Capital and Coffin Capital & Ventures; to name three.
Speaking of Coffin Capital & Ventures, the investment firm is led by Matt Coffin, an investor that also happens to be Goji’s Executive Chairman. According to Coffin Capital & Venture’s website, it also invested in insurance startups: Kelly Klee, Quilt and Captricity.
“Most preferred customers are not comfortable making decisions that involve insurance coverage of their most valuable assets without speaking with a licensed agent” – CEO Peter Breitstone. Sounds familiar? It should. Read below.
