How Lucas is building a better working world
“Since its inception hundreds of years ago, the insurance industry has provided security and peace of mind to its customers. However, digitization poses a significant threat to incumbent players and challenges roles and business models. In my current role, I link traditional insurance players with start-ups and innovative thinkers – helping both to create new and innovative products that create value for the customer. Collaboration and customer-centricity are the key ingredients to success.”
