Previsico welcomes Aleksander Surowiak as head of sales to propel InsurTech growth

Previsico, the innovative live flood forecasting InsurTech, has recently expanded its leadership team by appointing Aleksander Surowiak as the new Head of Sales.

This strategic move is aimed at accelerating Previsico’s growth and strengthening its pivotal partnerships within the insurance sector. Aleksander, with his profound experience in startup scaling, previously spearheaded sales at Tractable AI where he was instrumental in the company’s rapid ascent to unicorn status.

Founded on two decades of academic research, Previsico has made significant inroads in the InsurTech sector by offering live actionable flood warnings and advanced flood modelling capabilities. The company provides its pioneering real-time surface water flood forecast technology to major entities like Network Rail, United Utilities, and various insurers including Liberty, Zurich, and Generali. This technology is crucial for mitigating losses associated with surface water flooding, utilising IoT sensor devices and sophisticated modelling techniques.

Aleksander Surowiak is tasked with scaling Previsico’s go-to-market functions and enhancing key partner relationships. His role involves defining and executing a refined sales strategy and integrating effective systems, processes, and structures to support Previsico’s ambitious growth plans. His prior role as Business Development Director at Tractable AI saw the company grow significantly, which aligns with his new responsibilities at Previsico.

Before his notable tenure at Tractable AI, Aleksander worked at Strategy& (part of PWC), focusing on strategy consulting. His extensive background in business development and strategic sales across Northern and Central Europe has prepared him well for his new challenges at Previsico.

Since its inception in 2019, Previsico has garnered substantial global traction, supporting large-scale organisations and insurers with its innovative flood risk management solutions. The company’s evolution is a testament to the capabilities of its senior management team and its commitment to providing timely, accurate, and reliable tools for flood prediction.

Previsico CEO Jonathan Jackson said, “Previsico is already delivering the world’s leading real-time surface water flood forecast technology to help mitigate the impact of floods in the UK, US, and beyond. As we continue to expand, Aleks’ experience and expertise in working with major clients and stakeholders will be hugely beneficial to us. We are delighted to welcome him to our winning team.”

Aleksander Surowiak added, “I chose to join Previsico because after engaging with the team, I became convinced that they are a hidden gem poised for remarkable success, much like Tractable was. At its essence, Previsico offers unparalleled solutions that hold immense value, especially in today’s world where the impact of climate change is leading to an increase in extreme weather events, such as flooding.

“With its exceptionally talented team working as one, the trajectory for Previsico is undoubtedly upwards and onwards, and I cannot wait to be a part of that journey. Moreover, being able to help people avoid something as traumatic as a flood is a huge motivator to wake up each morning and get to work.”
