WHAT: Buckle’s Marty Young Joins Insuretech Disruptor Panel at ITC Las Vegas

WHEN: Wednesday, October 6, 2021, 2:00 p.m. - 2:50 p.m. PDT

WHERE: Mandalay Bay, 3950 South Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas

The landscape of insuretech has seen hundreds, if not thousands, of companies that did not exist at the time of the first ITC event. Some are direct competitors to established players. Others are looking to help established players disrupt themselves. Some look to fill the void no one else serves, neither competing nor directly enabling. In a world where “disruptor” is no longer one that thumbs their nose at the established companies or established way of doing things, what should the purpose of disruption mean? The panelists are discussing what an insuretech disruptor should be.

In addition to insuretech and fintech strategies, Marty leads Buckle in mergers and acquisitions execution. He is a globally recognized Wall Street professional with 20+ years of special situations experience in executing more than 75 transactions worth $30+ billion as both a trusted financial advisor and executive officer.

Marty graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point and was commissioned as a U.S. Army Infantry Officer. After 9/11, he transitioned into and continues to serve as a U.S. Army Chaplain in the National Guard. He also serves on the Advisory Board of the School of Industrial and Systems Engineering of the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he obtained a master's degree in Operations Research. In addition, Marty has an MBA from the NYU Stern School of Business and is a graduate of the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College.

During the three days of ITC, the industry is convening to showcase new innovations, learn how to increase productivity, reduce costs, and ultimately enrich the lives of policyholders. For more information on ITC Las Vegas, go to:
