INSURTECH innovator RDT has enhanced its growing account management team by bringing on board experienced insurance all-rounder Allan Wishart.
Allan joins RDT, which is known for developing disruptive software for general insurers, as an account manager. His expertise in insurance software and IT systems is enhanced by his direct experience as an underwriter and broker, predominantly in the motor sector. He also has detailed knowledge of agile software development and managing client relationships.
Allan will be supporting clients such as Eldon, Direct Line Group and Direct Commercial. He joins RDT from 1 Insurer, a software provider for policy and claims management, where he was a business analyst. Before that he spent eight years at Collinson Group, first as a business analyst and then head of home and motor underwriting.
He was an underwriter at Allianz Group, focusing on motor manufacturer accounts, and has worked in a wide range of support, operational and business development roles with companies such as the RAC and Cornhill Insurance, including broking as well as underwriting.
RDT CEO Mark Bates said: “Allan understands the industry from the inside and has the ideal blend of skills for our company. Innovation and collaboration are RDT’s hallmarks, so we need specialists who can work in partnership with insurers, understand their precise needs and help them to develop the right solutions. Allan is an insurance native with impressive technology experience and knowledge – the perfect background to help our clients make the most of insurtech.”
