As co-founder and CEO of Buckle, he is guiding the company to incorporate new technologies and data into insurance and credit products, alongside executing an M&A strategy.

With the pandemic forcing the insurance industry to change the way it operates, M&A within the sector is facing an imminent evolution. The definition of traditional deal-making could be altered as operators make adjustments to their distribution strategies and rely more on technology in the day-to-day running of their businesses. This opens a new scope for insurers as they reach a crossroads with having to choose their offensive and defensive strategies in the aftermath of COVID-19. For more information on the event, go to:
