Jimmy Williams - CEO and Co-founder
CEO and Co-founder
Jimmy founded Urban Jungle with Greg in 2016 after being constantly frustrated with how hard insurance is to buy, how expensive it is, and how difficult it is to make a claim. He has set out to build a team capable of turning the industry on its head. As CEO, Jimmy leads on strategy, people and investor relations, but loves rolling his sleeves up and diving into the business, and can even be caught manning our customer service from time to time.
Jimmy’s background is in consulting, where he worked with various insurers, tech providers in financial services, and price comparison sites, as a Principal at OC&C. He also worked in various other parts of retail, media and B2C tech, which allowed him to see just how far insurance is behind the curve. Jimmy has a first class degree from Cambridge University.
