Jonathan Franke, Tech, Media and Cyber Broker
Can you describe what your current role involves?
I’m a broker on the Technology, Media and Cyber Team. We find insurance solutions for a wide variety of risks spanning across a plethora of territories from the US to Africa. The classes of business we work with are always evolving so we need to be on our toes!
What is your favourite insurance fact?
In the filming of “A Space Odyssey (2001)”, Stanley Kubrick sought a policy in case a real-life alien invasion came before the movie was released. Lloyd’s of London declined.
What did you do before joining New Dawn Risk?
I joined New Dawn Risk a month after graduating from the University of Birmingham with a Bachelor of Science in Economics.
Tell us one thing about your career we didn’t know:
I originally wanted to go into the underwriting side of insurance but luckily found New Dawn and I haven’t looked back since.
What are your hobbies outside of work?
I am a big sport enthusiast; my main playing discipline is the traditional English game of cricket. I’m also an avid supporter of my childhood football club, Yeovil Town FC. Outside of sport, I love cooking up a storm in the kitchen.
