Robert Bauer is the Head of Sharing Economy and Mobility Group for Marsh – Managing Director.

Robert leads a team focused on enabling the future of mobility – scooters, e-bikes, ride-share, subscription, autonomy – and sharing economy by solving the most complicated risk and insurance challenges. Technology that matches supply with demand is shifting the landscape of risk quicker than regulation and risk-taking capital markets are able to follow. The line between commercial and consumer is blurred; new pricing models are being constructed with loss history that is just starting to take shape. Yet, the way we live, move, work, and travel is changing … now!
