ProspX, Inc., the social business platform for commercial insurance, announced
today that Stephen A. Gold, former president of sales and marketing at AIG for

industry experience to provide ProspX with strategic advice and insight as the
company continues to grow its carrier and broker customer base.
Gold has more than 27 years of commercial industry experience. As head of
commercial sales and marketing for AIG, he directed growth strategies and
business planning with major retail brokers across the United States and
Canada. He was instrumental in pioneering sales automation technologies to

industry, and I am honored to be joining the team as a trusted advisor.”
