Catherine has a long career in banking and insurance. She has contributed to the transformation of major organizations, including Aviva, Generali, and La Banque Postale where she particularly created and led La Banque Postale Assurances. As CEO of Wakam, and thanks to her experience in the insurance industry and in transforming organizations, Catherine is leading the teams to achieve the company’s ambitious goals.

As Country Manager for Italy & Spain, Francesco is in charge of managing the Italian and Spanish business and increasing its performance. Even though he started as a cavalry officer in the Italian Army, he has become an expert in the insurance sector at a European level throughout his career, with almost 20 years of experience in portfolio management within insurance companies.

Timothée graduated from ISG and Dauphine. He worked for several professional organizations before joining the ambitious project of Wakam, first as Chief of Staff to the CEO and then in the Mission office being responsible for developing the inclusive insurance offer and the Wakam for Good endowment fund. He has now recently been promoted to Head of Public Affairs.

After spending a few years designing, implementing, and testing applications features as a software developer, Nadine decided to specialize in DevOps. She joined Wakam as Senior DevOps Engineer to put in place processes to accelerate and automate end-to-end aspects of the software life cycle enabling near-continuous software delivery.

Graduated engineer from ENSAE and the Institut des Actuaires, Ying first experienced several positions as internal auditor, risk analyst and actuary, then has been a team leader on topics related to pricing, reserving, and automotive claims management for more than 4 years before joining Wakam, still as passionate about pricing and actuarial work.


Wakam is a European B2B2C insurer that designs white-label insurance products for its partners (e-retailers, brokers and fintech/insurtech, etc.). Our insurance products have the particularity of being embedded in the products or services offered to the end customer (for example, if you take a self-service e-scooter, you are automatically insured).

Wakam operates in 32 European countries with the majority of its turnover generated outside France. The company provides most of its products through API, and hosts white-label insurance solutions via its Play&Plug technology platform.

At Wakam we believe in the formula “for-profit & for good”. Since March 2021, we are a Mission-driven company, which means that our mission statement ‘Enabling transparent and impactful insurance’ is written in our bylaws. And we go further: by defining concrete commitments to illustrate this mission, such as writing our insurance contracts in plain language (no more confusing terms and conditions). We also create insurance products at cost for associations.

Our culture? Free to impact. A culture where everything is possible, where all ideas are taken into consideration, where everyone has an impact on the transformation of insurance! Hungry for freedom? Thirsty for autonomy? If you are adventurous and like challenges, then the Wakam adventure might be made for you!

What they are looking for

Mindset compatibility with our ‘Free to Impact’ culture:

  1. Think big
  2. Biased for action
  3. Curious and eager to learn
  4. Can say no and find solutions
  5. Aims for the moon (but please don’t stick on the moon)
  6. And above all: have fun working together 🤜🤛 !

Good to know

Wakam is not based on a hierarchy but on a methodology where everyone finds his role and knows his objectives.

With a flat hierarchical system and a highly collaborative operating model, Wakam is an extremely agile and transparent company.

Every last Friday of the month, it's Free.day at Wakam, a day without meetings to take a step aside and dedicate ourselves to skills sponsorship or other activities (because we are curious, I remind you).

Full-remote is a reality at Wakam (there is even one Wakamee who works from his sailing boat ⛵)

We are nice (you'll find out by yourself 😉)
