“I believe that the combination of a strong culture, the right values, talented employees, and a focus on results will always create outstanding results, and I saw all of that right away at Duck Creek,” said Winter. “The company’s success has been incredible to see, and I’m very excited to help Duck Creek continue its trajectory in my role as we continue to work with our customers and partners to define the new standard in P&C insurance.”
Winter joins Duck Creek from Rocket Software, a global leader in the mainframe and legacy platform space, where he served as Chief Marketing Officer.

Prior to that, Winter was the Divisional Chief Marketing Officer and Global Vice President for a Pitney Bowes software and data business. He also spent ten years at SAP in a variety of marketing leadership positions, as well as five years at IBM working across both marketing and strategy roles.
“Duck Creek has established our place as a SaaS leader in the P&C insurance industry, and as we move forward with our growth plans and seek to capitalize on opportunities, we need a known leader in marketing on our executive team to help us drive forward through this exciting future,” said Jackowski. “Jeff’s knowledge and experience are without compare, and his combination of skill and intuition make him a perfect choice to lead our corporate marketing department. We’re thrilled to have him join our team.”
