“Since joining us early in 2019, Vipul has led the development of our end-to-end technology stack and our breakthrough algorithmic underwriting technology, which is what enables us to change the way life insurance is provided and is also what enabled us to meet the increased demand we've seen during the pandemic,” Lingke Wang said in a press release. “We're thrilled to welcome him to the Executive Team."
Wang founded Ethos after being sold an inappropriate whole life policy at a young age. The company has grown significantly over the past year, adding Jennifer Liu from Google as CPO, Anan Kashyap from Poshmark as CFO, and Troy Thompson from Legal & General America as Chief Actuary, and promoting David Zhang to Chief Strategy Officer.
"I'm looking forward to focusing closely on helping Ethos scale to protect the next million families," Wang said.
