Triplejump appoints independent directors

Triplejump appoints independent directors

Risk management advice and solutions provider Triplejump has appointed Dr Allan Freeth and Ian Christie as directors as it prepares to apply to join the NZX’s new trading platform for growth stocks, to be established in July.

Allan Freeth, formerly Chief Executive of TelstraClear, has been appointed Chairman and international marketing executive Ian Christie will act as an Independent Director. Allan Morris, who has been Chairman, will remain on the board as a Non-executive Director.

Triplejump Chief Executive Officer Ian Black says the cloud based software company, set up to protect the wealth of business owners, is attracting keen interest from financial services organisations with a strong client base of small and medium enterprises.

Triplejump is poised to take its cloud based solution global with support from some of the world’s leading insurers and re-insurers. The company has a franchise network in New Zealand and is currently engaged with potential licensees in Australia and the UK.

The Albany-based company’s global ambitions have been further advanced with the recent signing of a strategic agreement with one of the world’s largest reinsurers as a partner in tapping the identified 1.5 trillion pound market opportunity in the United Kingdom.

“This is a watershed agreement with the potential to be replicated in other major markets,” Ian Black says. “Triplejump is expanding its board to provide the appropriate level of governance for the growth opportunities we are now enjoying. In Allan Freeth and Ian Christie we believe we have found two outstanding candidates with the skills and experience to help Triplejump achieve its goal of becoming a global leader in providing risk advice solutions to small and medium enterprises.”

Dr Freeth is currently Chairman of Housing New Zealand and is active with several charities and in the film industry. Previously, he was a member of the Treasury’s Advisory Board and a Director and past Chairman of Save the Children New Zealand. He also served as a Director on the Global Board of Save the Children. Prior to TelstraClear, Dr Freeth was Chief Executive at Wrightson Limited.

Ian Christie returned to New Zealand from London in 2013 where he had been a Global Account Director at creative agencies Grey London and Saatchi and Saatchi London, directing the advertising accounts for Nokia mobile phones and T-Mobile mobile networks. Christie was a founding shareholder of the specialist web video on demand studio Channel Flip and is currently a member of the Executive Team and Chief Marketing Officer for Findly, a San Francisco based global recruiting software provider.

Triplejump has also recently appointed Margaret Clark as Country Sales Manager Australia to develop and support customers in that market.
