ZestyAI, the leader in property analytics powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI), today announced that John Burega has joined the company as Chief Revenue Officer. Mr. Burega is a seasoned sales leader with a proven track record of rapidly scaling an insurance technology company with a successful exit to CoreLogic. Mr. Burega will be responsible for executing ZestyAI’s sales strategy while building upon the company’s tremendous customer momentum from the past few years.
“We’re humbled by the growth we’ve experienced as insurance carriers across the globe have embraced AI to better understand property valuation and manage risk,” said Attila Toth, Founder & CEO of ZestyAI “The strong market demand makes it critical to have a veteran leader like John at the helm of our commercial growth. He has a proven track record of architecting industry-defining deals and building high performing sales organizations. He also has the entrepreneurial mindset to help ZestyAI further cement our position as the leading AI platform for insurance and lead our expansion into real estate.”

At Symbility, he was responsible for driving the company’s sales initiatives and implementing its long-term strategic plan, including expansion into new geographic markets. After seeing Symbility through its successful exit, an acquisition by CoreLogic in 2018, he stayed on to architect some of the largest partnerships with leading insurance carriers worldwide.
“Insurance itself is at a critical inflection point with the adoption of artificial intelligence for rating and underwriting. The opportunity for ZestyAI to make an immediate and measurable positive impact for customers is just starting to be realized,” said Mr. Burega. “The company’s steep growth is a clear reflection of the overarching digital transformation taking place across the industry. I look forward to helping ZestyAI reach even greater heights in terms of market share and revenue.”
