Peters previously served as co-head of North American Underwriting practice at McKinsey & Company, and was a Fellow of the Casualty Actuarial Society.

Peters joins the insurance team in Lemonade’s New York office, including Ty Sagalow, formerly president of Product at AIG; James Hageman, formerly SVP Claims at ACE; and Ron Topping, formerly head of P&C Financial Planning and Analyses at AIG.
