Kevin brings with him over 30 years of insurance industry experience, including time in the U.K. domestic private medical insurance market with Cigna Healthcare and Standard Life Healthcare Limited before moving into the international private medical insurance market spending nearly nine years as the Head of International Sales for Allianz Worldwide Care. After Allianz, he went on to spend two years at Vanbreda International as the Deputy Director of Market Development, before moving to his most recent position, where he was the Global Head of Sales and Marketing for AXA Global Healthcare.
