Eckstein joins Neptune Flood from Fortune 500 technology provider, CDW, where he sold software and hardware directly to some large companies in the United States before being promoted to International Client Strategy manager, overseeing a team responsible for cross border technology sales.
At Neptune Eckstein will report to CEO Trevor Burgess helping to implement Neptune’s strategic growth plans. He will oversee project management including the launch of new technologies and products planned for 2020.
Burgess said Eckstein’s experience in software sales and his leadership in developing programs to enhance relationships with distributors will help the company as it expands in 2020 and beyond.
Neptune Flood was founded in 2017 by insurance and technology industry veterans, including Chairman, Jim Albert, with a goal of bringing advanced analytics and ease of use to the flood insurance market. Neptune Flood’s policies are currently backed global reinsurers. In January 2018, Neptune raised over $2 million in seed financing led by C1 Bank founder and former CEO Trevor Burgess who now serves as Neptune’s CEO. Neptune filed for a patent on its revolutionary technology engine, Triton, in November 2019, which enables consumers and agents to connect with insurance products such as its residential flood insurance offering.
