Presentation: The future of telematics in young driver road safety


Richard King is the founder and CEO of ingenie, which provides telematics insurance for young drivers. Since launching in 2011, the company has disrupted the market and established itself as one of the leading insurance brands for young novice drivers.

A serial technology entrepreneur whose successful track record includes co-founding the FTSE-listed Innovation Group, Richard has become passionate about road safety since starting ingenie and is a regular TV and Twitter contributor on the issue.

In 2013, ingenie received the coveted Prince Michael International Road Safety Award and in 2014 was named Best Start-Up at the British Insurance Awards and Broker Innovation of the Year at the Insurance Times Awards.

Richard is currently leading ingenie’s international expansion starting with North American, where the company has already gone live in Canada and is making plans to expand into the USA.

In his presentation, Richard will talk about the positive impact of telematics that ingenie has seen within its community of young and novice drivers, as well as some of the issues and potential barriers to further uptake. He will also discuss what the future looks like and what the government could be doing to support the road safety benefits of telematics insurance.
