Brian Gonzalez and Oswaldo Zamarron Join Sigo Seguros’s Diverse Team to Continue Fueling Support for Latinx Customers
July 8, 2021— Sigo Seguros, an inclusive auto insurance provider serving the Spanish speaking community, is expanding its team with the hire of Brian Gonzalez as Vice President of Marketing and Oswaldo Zamarron as Customer Success Manager. Both executives bring with them professional and personal experience that directly support Sigo Seguros’ mission to bring transparent, reliable, and affordable insurance to the Latino market. They will play a critical role in the launch of the company’s natively bilingual insurance product, soon to be available in Texas.
“Coming off the heels of our $1.5M funding round, we’re hyper-focused on continuing to increase awareness surrounding the disparate impact in auto insurance while finding new ways to reach and help our target customer. With the strategic leadership of Brian and Oswaldo, we will undoubtedly be able to support more customers, and particularly those who are overlooked by traditional auto insurers,” said Néstor Hugo Solari, Co-founder and CEO of Sigo Seguros.
Gonzalez has more than a decade of experience leading the growth, public relations, and product marketing of emerging brands. Most recently he led marketing efforts at Humanyze, a workplace analytics software company, and played an integral role in their go-to-market strategy for their new product launch. Gonzalez’s prior experience includes serving as the Assistant Director of Global Marketing and Communications at Berklee, where he led the launch of Berklee Latino across Latin America, Berklee India Exchange, and supported marketing efforts forBerklee’s campus in Valencia, Spain.
Zamarron, joining Sigo Seguros as Customer Success Manager, brings a wealth of insurance expertise to the team. He has several years of non-standard auto experience in Texas, one of the company’s key markets, and most recently served as a Senior Underwriting Manager with Acacia Insurance Managers. Prior to that position, Zamarron was a Claim Adjuster with Bristol West Insurance Group. His unique experience across different insurance functions, including claims, underwriting and customer service, give him a comprehensive understanding of the industry overall.
Sigo Seguros is 100% led by underrepresented minorities, a diversity statement that is rarely heard in the insurance industry. Gonzalez and Zamarron complement Sigo’s already diverse team and support the company’s commitment to understanding the experiences of the customers the company seeks to serve.
