Peter Paine makes jump from eBay to Cover Genius
Peter Paine, former business and partnerships lead at eBay and GM at Walmart eCommerce, has joined InsurTech venture Cover Genius as Head of Retail Partnerships, Americas.
“Peter’s extensive retail background with companies like Amazon, Walmart eCommerce and eBay will be a huge advantage for us,” says Angus McDonald, CEO and Co-founder, Cover Genius, which has developed an insurance distribution platform for e-commerce companies.
“His first hand knowledge of the space will help us continue to service retail clients in the US. Our XCover distribution platform can prompt targeted insurance offerings during checkout to increase customer engagement and build brand loyalty.”
“I’m very excited to make the jump from eBay, a major e-commerce corporation, to Cover Genius, an ambitious InsurTech,” Paine comments. “Its advanced technology is changing how retailers think about and approach insurance. Offering insurance was once a high-cost, high-time initiative, but with Cover Genius it can now be an automated, seamless profit centre that helps retailers drive the highest possible conversions.”
