Michael Bongartz becomes Chief Commercial Officer, Igor Lutsenko takes on the role of Chief Technology Officer
ELEMENT is bringing on board another renowned industry expert in Michael Bongartz, former Head of Digital Sales and Partnerships at AXA Germany and CEO of AXA easy Versicherung AG. Bongartz has held the role of Chief Commercial Officer since August 1. In addition, Igor Lutsenko, most recently VP Engineering, moves up to Chief Technology Officer of ELEMENT.
Michael Bongartz joins the Berlin-based InsurTechs' management team as CCO. For the past seven years, he has served as CEO of AXA easy Versicherung AG and also led the Digital Sales and Partnerships division at AXA Germany for four years. In the future, he will drive the commercialization of the ELEMENT portfolio. The focus will be on the structured provision of market-ready and flexible solutions for partner companies of the InsurTechs.
The goal: Connections and optimizations can be further accelerated, as specific requirements of partners have already been anticipated or can be quickly taken into account.
In addition to Michael Bongartz, Igor Lutsenko will also be joining the management team in the future. He has been working for ELEMENT for almost five years and will be heading the Software Development division as CTO with immediate effect. In his role as VP Engineering, Lutsenko and his team have shaped large parts of the proprietary platform, thus enabling ELEMENT's special technical capabilities. The technical infrastructure created under him enables easy and fast onboarding of partners, as well as other critical areas such as real-time policy pricing and automated claims processing.
With Michael Bongartz and Igor Lutsenko, we enrich our management team with both external commercialization expertise and long-standing internal technology competence. Together with them as the new CCO and CTO, we will map the individualization of our products as a standard process and thus implement the most diverse requirements of our customers even faster and more efficiently. We are very pleased to establish the credo Customization-as-a-Standard at ELEMENT with great strides in the future. There could not have been a better appointment to further develop our platform in the coming years.Dr. Christian Macht, Co-CEO of ELEMENT.
