“We’re privileged to have Andrew on board at Inzura; he is one of the industry’s leading names in telematics and his experience in the motor market particularly reads like a ‘who’s who’ of insurance,” said Richard Jelbert, chief executive officer at Inzura. “We’ve known Andrew for years and have wanted to work together for a while, so we’re excited now to have that opportunity and to explore his extensive experience and network in personal lines, IoT, and telematics technologies.”
“Working with Inzura was an opportunity too good to miss,” said Bennett. “There’s nothing more professionally rewarding than using your experience to see new businesses with exciting propositions grow and flourish. Inzura works with brokers and insurers to deliver enhanced digital versions of their insurance products through smartphone apps, leveraging telematics, integrated dashcams, and artificial intelligence. With some solutions deliverable in just six weeks and customers already achieving over 30% improvements in loss ratio, together with a 100% growth target in two years set for the company, Inzura is the new insurtech on everyone’s lips. I’m excited to be a part of the success story.”
