MGA Founders Podcast

Building a successful jewelry insurtech with Dustin Lemick, CEO of BriteCo

Tune in to hear from Dustin Lemick, founder and CEO of BriteCo, a personal property insurtech ​​transforming the status quo in jewelry retail.

Episode summary

Hear Dustin Lemick talk about insuring jewelry and how BriteCo is transforming the space with an embedded insurance product. Learn how Dustin’s background in fine jewelry retail informed his approach to tackling a major industry pain point. He started with moonlighting and networking, which led to meeting career actuary Conor Redmond, who would later become BriteCo co-founder and Chief Actuary.

Dustin also dives into BriteCo’s track record of lean operations, from handling actuarial models and rate filings in-house to being selective about key partners like tech providers and reinsurers. Of course, no episode about jewelry would be complete without sage style advice. An avid watch enthusiast, Dustin gives us his take on the greatest wristwatches of all time.
