Our liability & indemnity expert: Simply Business senior product manager Keith Lynn

Keith Lynn Simply Business

Im a senior product manager at Simply Business, with almost ten years of experience both working and studying in the insurance industry.

As one of the UK’s biggest business insurance providers, it’s both a challenge and a pleasure to work for a company that really looks to challenge the insurance industry stereotype and put the customer at the heart of all our decisions.

Ive worked my way through the products team, starting as a product analyst in 2012 and currently managing the business insurance product. Simply Business can cover nearly 1, 000 trade types so were not doing too badly on the product front!

Im often asked why I opted for a degree in insurance. And truth be told, I had initially planned to study construction management. Simply Business insure thousandsof UK tradesmen and project managers if things had worked out differently I could have been a customer.

With my sister studying the same course (I graduated with a BA in International Insurance and European Studies from the University of Limerick) and a brother working as loss adjuster, I first tasted the world of professional insurance at Cunningham Lindsey in Dublin.

Fast forward a number of years and my experience developing products for one of the UK’s biggest business insurance providers perhaps indicates I made the right choice.
