Pie Insurance hires long-time Chubb exec Foglietta as CFO

Pie Insurance has tapped up long-time Chubb executive Audra Foglietta to be the company's new CFO, as it enjoys a period of breakneck growth

Pie Insurance has appointed former Chubb executive Audra Foglietta as the company’s new Chief Financial Officer, effective next week.

Foglietta joins the Denver-based company after more than two decades at P&C insurer Chubb, where she has held numerous senior roles, including most recently as CFO for Global Operations and Technology. Previously, she had spent five years as CFO of Chubb’s excess and surplus division.

An experienced insurance industry executive, she brings “a proven track record of driving financial performance and optimising operational efficiencies,” Pie says in a statement announcing her appointment. She holds an MBA in Finance from Rutgers University and specialises in business transformation, corporate finance, financial planning and analysis, and business analytics and operations.

Pie claims Foglietta is joining “during a pivotal period of growth” at the company, which has grown direct written premiums by more than 250% over the last two years. It comes roughly a year after the company, which predominantly offers workers’ compensation insurance to small-and-medium-sized businesses, raised over US$300m in a sizeable Series D round.

Since 2017, Pie has received over $615M in funding and partnered with over 4,000 agencies nationwide.

Pie is ‘redefining commercial insurance’, new CFO says

“I’m honoured to join Pie as its CFO and be part of an organisation that is redefining the small commercial insurance landscape and growing at an impressive rate,” says Foglietta.

“Pie’s commitment to technology and innovation combined with its dedication to serving the unique needs of small businesses resonated with me. I look forward to working with the talented team at Pie to support the company’s mission and customers, and ultimately drive optimal financial performance and excellence.”

John Swigart, Co-Founder and CEO of Pie Insurance, adds: “Pie’s rise as the fastest growing workers’ comp insurer is a testament to the value we bring to our small business customers and partners.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Audra Foglietta to the team as Pie’s new CFO. Her extensive experience in the insurance industry and her leadership in developing top global finance and accounting teams will be instrumental in building upon our strong growth to date and preparing Pie for a long-term, sustainable future ahead.”
