serving the needs of the on-demand economy.

"We have architected a very talented team of employees at all levels
that are passionate about disrupting the insurance industry with cloud
technology," says CEO Tim Attia. "Philippe is widely respected for his
ability to break through the clutter of technology buzzwords to help
insurers derive real value from innovative technologies. At his most
recent employer this included strategically leveraging artificial
intelligence, which is a sweet spot for Slice Insurance Cloud services.

As Chief Growth Officer, Lafreniere will work with carriers globally to
partner on the development of realistic plans for creating new digital
insurance products serving business and consumer end-customers. He will
also infuse product development and marketing strategies with insight
into customer and broader industry discussions to help refine ICS.

Lafreniere is a proven insurance industry executive with a bench of
experience in product management, product marketing and sales for
various global, industry-leading technology companies. Before joining
Slice, he served as Senior Vice President of Product Marketing at EIS
Group, where he was responsible for helping insurers transform into
agile, digital enterprises. Prior to that, Lafreniere served as Vice
President of Product Innovation at iter8, as well as Director of Product
Marketing and Management at Camilion Solutions, where he helped scale
the company before its acquisition to SAP in 2013.

"This is the most exciting time to be an insurer in my entire career of
working with carriers around the world," said Lafreniere. "Slice ICS has
the potential to disrupt one of the oldest industries, waking up
sleeping giants to transform customer experiences leading to a brighter
and more sustainable future for the industry."

A graduate of the Insurance Institute of Canada, Lafreniere received his
C.I.P. before completing an Executive Program in Strategy and Innovation
from MIT Sloan School of Management.
