Risk Manager and Head of Insurance

About me:

At HyreCar, Rob is the Risk Manager and Head of Insurance. Prior to that he lead the effort to develop new ways for Lime to manage global corporate risk. He has spent his 30+ year career originating and cultivating disruptive businesses in the insurance space. Previously at Zendrive, Rob reinvented how driving risk is measured, managed and priced, with a focus on creating safer drivers and safer roads. His team leveraged mobile data analytics to measure driver behavior and price vehicle insurance more accurately than any other product on the market. His products allow businesses to lower their risk and control their cost of insurance. This data-centric approach has yielded record-breaking underwriting profits and improved road safety.

Over the past years many cities globally aspire and are working towards a more sustainable urban transport system. By introducing shared mobility options like e-bicycles and e-scooters, allowing ride-hailing, integrating these new modes and vehicles into public transport systems, cities hope to further reduce traffic, noise and pollution. This session will discuss how cities and mobility providers have been advancing in this transformation, review the regulatory landscape, consider safety and insurance implications, and reflect upon the latest innovations and possible future direction & solutions to accelerate the transition in the new mobility ecosystem.
