The insurtech’s existing chair will move into the vice chairman position, working alongside Blanc

Amanda Blanc has been named the non-executive chair of insurtech RightIndem’s board of directors.

She has been brought in to help the digital claims provider deliver on it ambition of fundamentally changing the way customers experience insurance at the point of claim.

Blanc said that the main attraction of working with the innovative tech firm was the potential to finally crack the perennial problem of disjointed claims services experiences.

The move will see Rob Wirszycz, who has served as chair of RightIndem since the insurtech began back in 2016, take on the role as vice chairman of the board, with responsibility for investor relations.

This news continues Blanc’s 30-year senior insurance career at a UK and European level. She joined Laka’s director’s board just yesterday to play an “instrumental role” to help the insurtech expand globally.

New thinking

“Bringing new thinking into the industry is something I have been advocating for some time and I look forward to helping RightIndem in their efforts to do just that,” Blanc said. 

“I have had the privilege of meeting many great insurtechs and startups as I pulled together my portfolio over the last few months. In RightIndem, I found a really special team with an elegant software solution that can be easily adopted by insurance claims providers.”

Oliver McGuinness, chief executive at RightIndem, added: “We are delighted to have [Blanc] on board and are really pleased that she believes in our vision.

“Her credentials and experience are second to none and I am confident she will help us become the digital claims solution of choice for the industry.”
