Movinx, the 50/50  joint venture between Daimler Insurance Services and Swiss Re, today announced that Carolin Gabor will take on as its CEO , based in Berlin, from Apr 1.

The joint venture aims to transform and innovate automotive and mobility insurance.

The joint venture will be open for cooperations with other stakeholders such as car manufacturers or, more generally, mobility service providers. Future partners will benefit from our co-owned insurance MGA and be able to offer white-labeled solutions globally. Instead of having to deal with many insurers, the manufacturer has one sparring partner, Movinx, across countries.

Movinx will partner with locally licensed insurers to deliver its solutions to the end-customers and cover insurance risk. Insurers and other stakeholders can connect to the IT platform and profit from centralised operations and automated processes supported by a combination of machine- and deep-learning technologies. By connecting to the MGA's platform, insurers benefit from not having to build tailored and quickly changing insurance programs.

The appointment of Carolin Gabor is a next important step after the launch of Movinx in October 2020. As of 1 April, the leadership team of Movinx will consist of Carolin Gabor, Andreas Roth and Sebastiaan Bongers.

Carolin is an experienced entrepreneur. As former Managing Partner of finleap, a large fintech ecosystem, she was instrumental in developing new business models from scratch and supporting the successful growth of the finleap portfolio companies such as solarisBank, Clark and finleap connect.

Her last company building project was co-founding Joonko AG, a financial aggregator enabling consumers to find the right banking and insurance products in a radically simple and data-driven way.

"She is an innovative leader and has a proven track record in developing and deploying digital business models and guiding them into profitability." says Carlo Bewersdorf, CEO of Swiss Re's iptiQ division.

“With Carolin Gabor we found an experienced entrepreneur with finance and insurance startup background for the CEO position. We are very happy to have her as a part of the Movinx management team and look forward to seeing her and the team further drive digital mobility insurance,” says Ingo Telschow, CEO of Daimler Insurance Services.
