Qlaims was set up by a group of visionaries with decades of experience of working in the general insurance market.
Over the last few years, we’ve been developing new, disruptive technologies and approaches – based on those used in consumer logistics – that merge traditional insurance with Insurtech.
The aim? To offer a quicker, easier, less expensive claims journey for policyholders, brokers and insurers alike.

Meet the team
Chief Executive Officer
Malcolm is our founder and CEO and had a background in ﬁnancial accounting software before becoming an insurance corporate claims advocate working for multinational Clients around the Globe. He created the original Loss Recovery Insurance product which provides policyholders with the services of their own Loss Adjuster which is still being sold in the UK today.
Passionate about improving the Customer claims Journey, in 2016 he started to develop the concept of a twenty-ﬁrst century upgrade of Loss Recovery Insurance, fusing conventional insurance, claims handling with the latest mobile and cloud based Insurtech software technology. The result of which is Qlaims Insurance
Outside of Qlaims, he divides his time between London and Derbyshire and looking after “Tuppy”, our Qlaims ofﬁce dog.
Simon is our Non-Executive Chairman, having joined the business in May 2020. He has been in and around the UK insurance industry for well over 30 years, comfortably qualifying as a ‘veteran’.
He spent the first 19 years of his career at RSA, before moving on to Brit Insurance and, more recently Covéa Insurance. As an Executive Director and Board Member at Covéa he led the Commercial Lines & HNW business to more than treble in size in 6 years.
He is a strong believer that businesses with the strongest customer propositions delivered by great people are the ones most likely to succeed.
He was attracted to Qlaims by the unequivocal focus on the end customer and the use of digital technologies to help them through the claims process – the moment of truth for any buyer of insurance!
Simon is a fervent (but perpetually disappointed) supporter of Arsenal. He loves the great outdoors, whether hiking in the Alps or walking the dogs in the Shropshire Hills. As a big music fan he also looks forward to the days when live music returns, especially festivals, the perfect way to spend a (sunny) summer weekend!

Chief Technical Officer
Jon is our Chief Technical Ofﬁcer and heads up our Insuretech division Qlaimstech. He is responsible for implementing innovative technology across all channels of the UK insurance market.

Not a lot of people know this, but Jon’s claim to fame is, in his words, before the ‘Hooky Street’ of insurance Jon was a cameraman at the BBC and worked on episodes of Only Fools and Horses.
Our Qlaims ofﬁce dog, tells us she never intended to go into insurance or even Insurtech. Upon leaving boarding kennels with a relatively good Kennel Club Certiﬁcate her ﬁrst thoughts turned to farming, possibly some sheep work or even security. Like everyone else in the City, she kind of fell into insurance. She believes in the next few years you will see more and more insurance ofﬁce dogs, there are no glass ceilings standing in their way. Dogs at Board level, CEO’s and even entering Lloyds’, who knows.
