Canadian InsurTech Leader Keal Appoints New General Manager to Build for the Future

Dimitrios Argitis Brings Years of Cloud Software Experience, New Vision for 2020 to Keal Technologies

MONTREAL , Jan. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Keal Technology, an expert in Canadian broker innovation powered by Vertafore, announced that Dimitrios Argitis has joined the company as Vice President and General Manager to lead Keal's next phase of growth and roll out new solutions to the Canadian market.

Keal's mission is to provide Canadian brokerages with world-class solutions that contribute to their success in an increasingly competitive marketplace. A respected leader and seasoned software and product executive, Argitis is known for successfully leading organizational transformations to enhance customer success, optimize revenue and build for the future.

"Canadian customers will benefit from a company determined to stay Canadian, but with the additional resources of a large international organization with a track record for delivering innovative, world-class software," said Argitis. "Imagine the solutions we can bring to the Canadian market, both homegrown as well as those adapted from proven solutions in the United States to fit Canadian brokers' needs. This will drive significant value for our customers."

Argitis graduated from McGill University and has spent his 23-year career working for several leading software organizations based in Toronto and Montreal , such as TECSYS and Epicor Retail (currently Aptos). Often referred to as a Swiss Army knife, Argitis is well versed in all aspects of the customer lifecycle – spanning from sales to project delivery, custom development, customer support and business optimization.

Argitis succeeds Pat Durepos and Renee Durepos . In 2016, the Dureposes, then owners of Keal, joined the Vertafore family for the betterment of their broker partners and their employees. Having completed the goal of transitioning Keal from a family-owned company to a leader in the InsurTech space, the Dureposes are moving on from Keal to usher in a new wave of innovation and growth.

Argitis is excited by the opportunity to work for Keal, a staunchly Canadian software solution, made by Canadians for Canadians. He sees significant potential in Keal's future thanks to the backing of Vertafore, the leading insurance software provider in the U.S.
