CHICAGO (April 12, 2016) - Gus Fuldner, head of risk management and insurance at Uber, was honored today as Business Insurance’s 2016 Risk Manager of the Year. The awards ceremony took place during the RIMS conference in San Diego. Aon Risk Solutions, the global risk management business of Aon plc (NYSE: AON) congratulates its client on this esteemed recognition.
“In a little under two years, Gus has built a robust insurance function from the ground up, keeping up with Uber’s fast paced insurance needs,” said Randy Nornes, executive vice president with Aon Risk Solutions. “What’s more, he was the driving force that brought insurers, regulators and transportation network companies together in the U.S. to set a uniform standard for ridesharing automobile liability insurance, a shift that has transformed the insurance industry.”
Fuldner approaches insurance with a fresh perspective. Under his direction, Uber’s liability insurance program involves hundreds of coordinated policies and are amongst the most complex programs for a large multinational company. Beyond his work at Uber, Fuldner was instrumental in spearheading a U.S. ridesharing insurance compromise, which has been legislatively adopted by a majority of states and is supported by the personal auto insurance marketplace. In addition, he has been a particularly strong advocate of changing the model for measuring auto liability exposure from a unit basis to a usage basis, bringing multiple leading global carriers along a journey to re-evaluate how they price auto risk.
Business Insurance’s Risk Manager of the Year Award was created to increase the recognition of outstanding performance in the practice of risk management. Read more about Fuldner in Business Insurance: LINK
