RightIndem appoints Kieran Rigby as Chairman of the Board of Directors
RightIndem today announces that veteran insurance claims executive, Kieran Rigby, has joined its board as Chairman. He succeeds Amanda Blanc who stepped down in July after being appointed Group CEO at Aviva plc.
With a 35-year career in loss adjusting and claims management, Kieran was most recently the Global President of Crawford Claims Solutions, having been part of the ‘Crawford family’ from 2014 when GAB Robins UK was acquired by Crawford. At the time, Rigby was CEO and co-owner of GAB Robins UK. In the interim, Kieran has served as CEO of Crawford Europe and Latin America and in 2017, was promoted to President, International overseeing all operations outside US.
He says “I am delighted to be joining the RightIndem board. The team have created a game-changer for claims, leveraging digital claims reporting to facilitate supply chain orchestration and straight through processing which is pivotal to the future of claims. In the wake of the current pandemic, carriers, MGA’s and brokers are seeking to digitally accelerate their claims and RightIndem is perfectly placed to support that. I look forward to helping guide the business to the next stage of its growth.”
Commenting on Rigby’s appointment, Oliver McGuinness, CEO, said: “We’re delighted to be able to bring Kieran on to the board. His vast experience, knowledge and global claims insight will be pivotal as we continue on our growth journey”.
With this appointment, Rob Wirszycz, who has served as non-executive director and Interim Chair since Amanda Blanc’s departure, moves to become Vice Chairman, with responsibility for investor relations.
Launched in the UK in 2016, RightIndem manages thousands of claims globally, across motor, property and other business lines on its platform, facilitating the claims process from initial notification of a claim through to the orchestration of the supply chain and settlement solutions. This allows insurers, brokers and claims management firms to put the claims reporting and automation processes in the hands of the customer, improving the user experience and reducing both operating and claims costs.
