Introducing our New Leaders of the Kinetic Insurance Team

December 14, 2021   |


We’re excited to welcome three new additions to the Kinetic team! Ronnie O’Dell, Steven Schafer and Gerritt Graham will lead Kinetic Insurance, our new insurance offering in partnership with Nationwide. Kinetic Insurance provides top-of-the-line workers’ compensation coverage to employers in safety-critical industries.

The team has begun at full speed, pioneering a new approach to worker safety and insurance with a proactive policy offering that directly equips policyholders with wearable tech that’s verified to reduce injuries and losses.

Please meet our new leaders, who recently shared their thoughts on how Kinetic is expanding the benefits of wearable safety tech to more employers, to increase industry adoption.

As EVP of Growth Strategy, Gerritt Graham leads go-to-market strategy marketing and distribution. Gerritt is a seasoned growth executive with more than 20 years experience leading sales and marketing organizations across the financial services vertical. Notably, he was the Chief Commercial Officer for Corvus Insurance Holdings, Inc., leading that market to over 100M in premium.

“The innovation happening in the Insurtech space is amazing and is transforming an area of financial services that has been a laggard in tech adoption. Kinetic is bringing to market exactly what every insurance carrier should be, best-in-class policies that deliver risk transfer for the insured alongside technology that mitigates the risk for both parties.”

Vice President Ronnie O’Dell leads business development and broker relations. Ronnie brings more than two decades of business development experience to his new role, most recently as VP of Distribution for CopperPoint of California (Formerly Pacific Compensation Ins. Company), a $380M mono-line workers’ compensation business unit of Copperpoint Insurance Companies based in Arizona.

“At Kinetic Insurance we’re assembling a limited network of forward thinking “high value” brokers that specialize in the targeted industries where the Kinetic wearable device delivers exceptional results.”

Steven Schafer is serving as Vice President of Underwriting. Steven has a proven track record of building and leading profitable insurance organizations, having served as Underwriting Leader of Specialty  Programs for EMPLOYERS, and before that, as AVP of Underwriting for Pacific Compensation Insurance Company.

“We want to provide every customer with best-in-class workers’ compensation coverage along with a risk management solution that’s been proven to reduce workplace injuries. We’re currently having a lot of success reducing injuries and creating safer work environments for our fortune 500 clients. We want to offer the same technology to the middle market customer so they can experience the same benefits. What’s exciting and unique is the customer receives this technology with their workers’ comp policy at no additional cost!”
