Whitespace adds AIG’s Greensmith and Amwins’ Purviance to advisory board
E-trading company Whitespace has appointed AIG’s global head of specialty Paul Greensmith and Amwins CEO Scott Purviance to its advisory board.
The advisory board of the business, recently acquired by Sequel, already comprises leading figures from across the industry, including Ascot CEO Andrew Brooks, Convex CEO Stephen Catlin and McGill and Partners CEO Steve McGill.
The advisory board meets quarterly to advise on developing the international offering of the platform.
Whitespace said the new appointments reflected the global nature of the business, which has expanded across Europe, North America and Africa.
The new appointments come at a pivotal time for the company, which has seen rapid growth in the past two years and is now in the running to deliver PPL’s NextGen platform, after a previous contract with CGI was terminated.
Whitespace and Deloitte’s technology business are competing to secure the contract with PPL, working to upgrade its platform in line with broader modernisation efforts in the London market and the Future at Lloyd’s Blueprint Two initiative.
Chief platform officer at Whitespace Marcus Broome said the advisory board consisted of “some of the most influential leaders in the industry”.
“Their advice and market insight [are] extraordinarily valuable as we continue to build out our international business,” he added.
