In his new Director position, he will continue leading the Software Engineering and Product division of rabbit finance.

Orramittra previously worked at Tesco General Insurance Broker, where she was the Head of Marketing, responsible for life and non-life insurances.

Thomas Maier is an experienced investment banking associate from Germany. He previously worked at Lazard, the world’s leading financial advisory and asset management firm, where he advised insurance and banking clients on mergers, acquisitions, and corporate finance issues. In addition, he gained relevant experience working at other leading banking and consulting firms such as Credit Suisse, BNP Paribas, EY, and Deloitte. His interest in e-commerce businesses developed when he was advising Trivago, the global hotel search platform that became publicly traded on the NASDAQ exchange in 2016, on their strategy concept for mobile devices. In his new role, he commits to expand rabbit finance with outstanding marketing initiatives and deliver high quality services to all clients and stakeholders. Thomas said, “I am delighted to be able to contribute to the further development of rabbit finance as well as having the chance to work closely with Thailand’s leading banks and insurers.”
Michael said “With these new high quality hires, rabbit finance is well equipped to grow exponentially and continue to be the leader of Thailand’s online insurance brokers. Thomas is bringing in fresh energy and great experience to further improve our marketing team. Orramittra, on the other hand, has established strong relationships with Thailand’s leading commercial insurers. I am convinced that she will be successful in developing our new B2B division. Both Orramittra and Thomas will be great assets to our company and complement our senior management team. André, who has been responsible for IT matters since the foundation of rabbit finance, already impressed me in many occasions and will continue being the backbone of our internet presence and comparison algorithm.”
