Tempcover appoints new Partnerships Director to help grow market share

Short-term motor insurance specialist Tempcover has appointed Ryan Bendelow as Partnerships Director as part of its strategy to consolidate its success in the automotive retail and insurance aggregator sectors, while focusing on expanding its reach into new and underserved sectors, such as the broker market.

Bendelow obtained 13 years of experience at multinational insurer RSA, where he held various roles including leading a national SME deals team, eTrading Channel Manager and Sales Manager for the South Broker Development team.

Since March 2020, he held the role of Head of B2B Sales at Zego – an InsurTech specialising in commercial motor insurance – where he set the distribution strategy, grew the broker partner base and delivered against the new business budget.

In his new role, Bendelow will be responsible for expediting the growth of Tempcover’s existing partnerships, while developing new ones too. Commenting on his new appointment, Bendelow says:

“For the InsurTech industry to disrupt, adoption at scale is key. Tempcover has already developed an impressive partner base, and I look forward to building on that to enable us to distribute products to large customer bases, faster. By working collaboratively with more partners, we’ll ensure continuous iterative improvements to our insurance products, ultimately to the benefit of our customers.”

Tempcover CEO Alan Inskip adds: “Tempcover continues to enjoy sustained and measurable growth in the face of adverse economic conditions and, with Ryan’s wealth of industry experience combined with his proven track record in increasing sales and growing partnerships, we are confident that he will help to accelerate this growth.”

Tempcover is the UK’s original InsurTech and since 2006 has sold more than 3.4-million short-term vehicle insurance policies that last anywhere between 1-hour and 28-days – offering truly flexible short-term cover for the time drivers actually need, with no long-term commitment or auto-renewals.
