Leading litigation and commercial law firm rradar, on the cutting edge of digital and insurance innovation, today announced the appointment of Kieran Rigby, a highly experienced global claims management leader as Non-Executive Director to its Board.
His appointment began on August 1.
Kieran brings extensive experience as a senior executive with significant global expertise in claims management, insurance, technology and loss adjustment solutions, having owned, led and directed large claims management organisations.
During his 35-year career he has advised on a wide variety of major business, investment, M&A activities and digital strategy transformation as part of claims solutions across a diverse range of sectors and regional jurisdictions globally.
This included scaling claims management solutions on digital platforms from applications, architecture and infrastructure perspectives.
More recently, Kieran served as Global President of Crawford Claims Solutions, CEO International and CEO Europe and Latin America for Crawford and Company from 2014 until 2020. Kieran was also the CEO and Owner of GAB Robins UK until it was acquired by Crawford and Company in 2014. Kieran will work alongside CEO Gary Gallen and rradar’s Board, advising on the strategy and growth of the company. Kieran will provide a key role in diversifying and strengthening the strategic and operational leadership of rradar.
His skills will complement the existing experience of the board, bringing constructive challenge and advice and contributing to the development of strategy and business planning through a fresh, independent and external perspective.
Gary Gallen, rradar CEO, said:
“I am very pleased to welcome Kieran to our Board as a Non-Executive Director. This is a significant appointment for rradar and to have secured someone of his calibre, with significant global knowledge and experience in claims management and digital solutions, insurance and leadership capabilities is both testament to the growth potential and future development of the company and an invaluable asset for us as we begin to accelerate our growth strategy over the next year.
“Over the last 9 years, rradar has achieved significant success developing a range of innovative digital solutions to the problems facing businesses as they seek reliable support and guidance to navigate the maze of corporate law and regulation. We have also proved invaluable to businesses struggling with the challenges of the pandemic and have helped thousands of them keep abreast of the latest legal and regulatory changes and survive. Now, as we move into the post-pandemic world, we need first-class expertise and strategic acumen and I believe Kieran can bring that to the rradar vision.”
Kieran Rigby commented on his appointment:
“Having worked in the insurance industry, watching rradar’s rapid evolution from a start-up law tech to an established feature of the legal and insurance industries has been fascinating and inspiring. What rradar has achieved in only a few short years under Gary’s leadership shows that there has been a real need for this sort of radical vision and I’m delighted to be stepping onboard at such a pivotal stage for the company to work closely with the team and see rradar reach its goals of delivering value and innovation to its clients.”
During his time at Crawford, Kieran led a division of over 3000 staff and pivoted the company’s claims solutions business from a geography model to a global service line to leverage scale, innovation and best practices across different jurisdictions.
He has served on multiple Boards of companies in the UK, Australia, Asia, Latin America and is currently the Chair for Rightindem (insurtech).
