Workshare appoints Annette Court as non-executive director

Annette Court, the ex-chief executive of RBS Insurance (Direct Line Group) and Zurich FS European General Insurance, has been appointed a non-executive director at Workshare, a firm that offers online enterprise file sharing services to insurers on common platforms.

With over 30 years’ experience in insurance, Court will join the board at Workshare as it seeks growth via the expansion of its enterprise collaboration and communication applications which allow users to create and share content anywhere, on any device, in a bid to offer enhanced efficiency and work access to claims, customer files, internal work projects and so forth.

The enterprise file share, sync and collaboration market is expected to grow globally as firms seeks additional operational IT efficiencies as post-crash regulations, such as Solvency II and the UK’s RDR regime increase the cost of doing business.

Court presently sits on the boards of the insurers Admiral Group, JLT Group and property specialists Foxtons as a non-executive director, but is adding Workshare to her portfolio as she believes her insurance experience can benefit the business. “As professionals rely more on mobile devices in a globalised workplace, Workshare is in a strong position to emerge as a pivotal player in the enterprise file sharing and collaboration application market,” she said. “The company has a strong and experienced management team and has all the right ingredients to become the go-to application for users who want the ease-of-use of consumer-grade file sharing offerings, but have a fundamental requirement for security.”
