Andrew Rear joins the Ticker board

Ticker is delighted to announce the appointment of Andrew Rear to the Ticker board as a non-executive director.

As the former CEO of Munich Re’s Digital Partners, Andrew has been influential in Ticker’s growth, with Munich Re and Munich Re Ventures providing capacity and investment.

Since launching Digital Partners, Andrew has shown his expertise and passion for insurtech, supporting established businesses and startups to drive their innovation strategy.

Prior to his decade with Munich Re, he was a partner and head of insurance at Oliver Wyman. Since leaving Digital Partners in March 2021, Andrew has taken a number of positions, including Chairman of Buckle, a US gig economy insurtech, and partner at Motive Partners, a private equity firm specialising in fintech.

Andrew will be working very closely with Ticker’s founder and CEO, Richard King, as the business rapidly accelerates its growth. Ticker is one of the most dynamic telematics insurers in the UK and, as the team embarks on some major investment into the development of new propositions, it is the perfect time to have Andrew’s expertise on the board.

“It’s always been important to me that we have a board with incredible industry experience. We started out with a stellar cast that includes some big names, including Adrian Brown. Andy is formally joining the board at an exciting time and his expertise in the insurtech space is going to be invaluable.”

“As Ticker’s anchor business and capacity partner at Munich Re, I watched them grow in scale and technology maturity towards their vision of being the most sophisticated connected motor insurer in the UK. I’m excited to be able to continue that journey with them.”
