HONG KONG - Media OutReach - 11 September 2019 - Galileo Platforms Limited (Galileo Platforms), an insurance technology company using blockchain to revolutionise the sector, today announced the appointment of Simon Copley to the Board of Directors as an independent director.

Mr. Copley is the first independent director to join the Galileo Platforms board. Based in Hong Kong, his appointment took effect 1st August 2019.

The appointment represents a significant step forward for Galileo Platforms, a business-to-business operation, as it readies for fresh funding and a pending product launch.

His experience extends to providing counsel on IPOs. During 21 years as a partner at PwC in Hong Kong, he led the firm's regional insurance industry practice in what was a period of huge sector growth and transformation in the region.

Chair of Galileo Platforms Annette King commented: "Simon will bring additional experience and oversight to our governance and business expansion, which is important given the rapid growth of our business. This knowledge is obviously transferable to our product development and marketing, which is very important too."
