Adrian Steele, a claims professional with over 3 decades’ experience in the UK and European claims and reinsurance markets, has been appointed Group Claims Director for Insure The Box Limited (Insure The Box).
London, 1 April 2016, Adrian will undertake the role alongside his current position as Head of Claims Europe for Aioi Nissay Dowa Insurance Company of Europe Limited (ANDIE), which acquired the majority stake in Box Innovation Group Limited – the owner of Insure The Box – in March 2015.
Prior to joining Aioi Nissay Dowa in 2014, Adrian had worked for Munich Re, RSA, Direct Line and AIG in a number of claims management, technical claims and claims transformation roles.
As Group Claims Director for Insure The Box, Adrian will spearhead the insurer’s zero tolerance attitude to fraud, supported by its unique ability to determine the precise circumstances surrounding a claim through telematics data and black box technology.
Adrian comments: “Insure The Box is in a stronger position than most of its competitors to identify the perpetrators of fraud and I look forward to working with our market-leading counter fraud team as they continue to evolve our techniques to spot the signs of fraud and halt those claims in their tracks. It is important that we at Insure The Box, as well as the rest of the industry, send out a clear message that we take a tough line on fraud.”
“We are operating in a fast-changing motor claims landscape from both a technical and legal perspective, but Insure The Box will continue to innovate and lead the charge in tackling motor insurance fraud. By defending against fraud, we protect the vast number of our customers, who are law-abiding.”
