A 25-year company veteran, Ricky has been a critical leader in Allianz Partner’s legacy of industry firsts, such as being the first to embed travel insurance in the booking paths of airlines, OTA’s, and most recently the world’s largest hotelier, while innovating solutions for airline loyalty programs, launching a full-service travel insurance app, and providing a fully digital claims platform. Ricky’s expertise in strategic planning and relentless customer focus has helped transform the notion of a simple product provider into one of the most powerful partnership growth engines in the industry.
