“Equipsme is about democracy. Everyone should be able to access private healthcare and take charge of their health – not just big businesses and top executives. We wanted to help people take care of themselves, and businesses of all sorts of shapes and sizes take care of their people.”
Matthew ran away to sea at an early age and joined the Royal Navy and ended up working for the United Nations in Sierra Leone. He fell into insurance by accident, and via sales and marketing at Howden Insurance Brokers. Since then he’s had quite a few jobs in general insurance, all focused around SMEs – including as CEO of Powerplace and as part of the team that turned around AXA General Insurance in the UK.
