Team

Jonas Bosch

CTO

I greatly enjoy solving technical problems and helping others navigate complexity. At vlot, we make understanding social security systems easy and help customers find the life insurance they want and need.

Fun fact: I am too cool to have a fun fact.

Michael Dritsas

CEO

I am passionate about enabling individuals to take responsibility for safeguarding the lives of their loved ones as well as their pension and savings decisions. At vlot we believe that by making the whole journey tangible, and transparent we are helping people secure their financial longevity.

Fun fact: Used to be a Drum & Bass DJ and loves tinkering with old cars.

Sandro Matter

Co-founder

My 2014 was packed with drastic life events: my mother died out of the blue, my 2nd daughter was born, and we bought a little house. Making the biggest debt of our lives, my wife and I wanted to understand and improve our life risk coverage situation – which was a painful process. With vlot this changed.

Fun fact: I never ever would have imagined to launch a start-up venture with my insurance advisor.

Daniel Schmidheiny

Co-founder

The initial spark for vlot emerged from my daily practice as an owner and CEO of an insurance broker company – realizing that life insurance distribution was up for a radical change.

Fun fact: I am a serial entrepreneur.

Michele Matter

Office Manager

As a mom of two little girls, I don’t have the time to talk with an insurance advisor about complex products. vlot intuitively helps me navigate the complex world of state and employer related risk benefits – guiding me to identify the right life risk coverage for each distinct phase of my life.

Fun fact: I made it twice into the newspaper NZZ – once indirectly via vlot and once by giving an interview about my chipmunk Peanut.

Rémy Mila

Software Engineer

I’m an agile enthusiast and passionate about Software craftsmanship. I love to code with simplicity in a strong team spirit environment such as vlot.

Fun fact: Used to play in a rock band.

Kyle Edwards

Business Development & Analyst

Coming from a quantitative finance background, I help vlot make business and analytics decisions to enable financial responsibility.

Fun fact: I joined vlot from sending a spontaneous application when living in Canada.
