NEXT Insurance hires Jack Ramsey to lead agent business

Digital commercial insurer Next Insurance announced its hire of Jack Ramsey to lead the company’s agent channel.

Ramsey brings over three decades of experience in the insurance industry, with a focus on helping agents who serve the small business community. Ramsey began his career as a Nationwide agent, where he gained a unique perspective on how insurance companies can best work with agents. Over the years, he rose through the ranks and held several leadership positions, including running sales, marketing and communications at Allstate Business Insurance, in addition to serving as the head of sales for CNA Small Business.

“Serving the insurance needs of small business owners as an agent or broker requires great coverage, competitive pricing, and an easy, efficient quoting and binding experience. NEXT’s digital approach to providing insurance coverage for small businesses and partners has changed the tides of how customers interact with their agent and insurance carrier. I’m excited to be part of NEXT’s commitment to the agency channel.” – Jack Ramsey, VP of Agents at NEXT.

Ramsey will focus on connecting NEXT with the largest brokers and agents in the U.S. who specialize in small businesses. Drawing on his past experience and relationships, he will take the time to do a full evaluation of how NEXT can continue to best support the specific needs of agents. Ramsey will embark on a full listening tour to hear firsthand how NEXT can address potential coverage gaps and refine digital tools to help agents grow their customer relationships.

“NEXT is focused on helping small businesses thrive, and insurance agents play a key role in helping SMB owners get the coverage they need so that they are protected. To better serve small businesses, we must work closely with their trusted agent partners, and we believe our digital strategy can help deliver a heightened, simpler experience for them. We are excited to have Jack Ramsey lead our agent channel and believe with his appointment, NEXT is taking an important step toward supporting the agent community.” – Guy Goldstein, CEO and co-founder of NEXT.
