hx appoints Fiona Talbot as Chief Financial and Operations Officer
We are excited to announce the appointment of Fiona Talbot as Chief Financial and Operations Officer at hx.
Starting her career in finance at PwC specialising in tax and transactions, Fiona brings extensive experience from her recent executive positions at high-growth companies like Limitless Technology, StarLeaf, Vonage and NewVoiceMedia.
Fiona says “I am beyond excited to join hx at this pivotal stage in their journey, to shape the organisational framework and deliver initiatives to support high growth and operational efficiency across its expanding global footprint. It’s very rare to see such a strong pull and product-market fit at such an early stage. hx is solving real problems for actuaries, underwriters, executives and IT – delivering speed, intelligence and confidence in speciality and commercial pricing.”
Amrit Santhirasenan, Co-founder and CEO at hyperexponential commented “We are delighted to welcome Fiona, and for the new phase of maturity and scale that this signals for hx. Since our Series A funding round last year, we have focused on improving our product and galvanising our go-to-market functions with world-class talent. Fiona will be the driving force in developing our business operations, finance and people functions so we as a business can realise our full potential.”
At hx, our mission is to free the potential of actuaries and underwriters through the removal of painful, outdated pricing processes from their day to day.
Founded and run by actuaries, we’ve reimagined actuarial pricing from the ground up.
