Simon Logan (pictured), whose rich experience includes about 15 years with RSA, has joined INSHUR to serve as the insurtech’s vice president of commercial & legal.
Most recently, the seasoned solicitor held the role of legal director of insurance for EMEA (Europe, the Middle East, and Africa) at Uber. Logan’s credentials also include a stint at Aviva.
The new VP is a familiar face for INSHUR, which is Uber’s partner in providing private hire vehicle insurance to drivers of the ridesharing platform.
“I got to know David [Daiches] and the INSHUR team while working on the partnership with Uber,” noted Logan, who will be advising on commercial development and growth strategy while overseeing overall legal responsibility amid the start-up’s expansion. “INSHUR is one of the most credible and fastest-growing businesses in its space.
“From the outset, it was clear we had a strong and aligned understanding of the disruption and potential INSHUR brings to the market. INSHUR’s track record speaks for itself; it has secured solid commercial and VC (venture capital) backing, established great allies and commercial partners, and on top of that they are a great bunch of people.”
Based in New York and Brighton, INSHUR is supported by Munich Re Digital Partners.
Commenting on the appointment, co-founder and chief operating officer David Daiches stated: “We’re growing at a rapid pace, and Simon’s reputation within the insurance and tech industries alongside his strong connections within the global team at Uber made him stand out as someone who can bring much value to our growing business and senior leadership team.
“We are delighted he chose us; we have worked closely with Simon as we have furthered our relationship with Uber.”
