Wayne Smart
Innovation lead (Europe)

Wayne is Innovation Lead for Travelers in Europe. His remit is to future-proof the company, so that Travelers becomes the automatic choice of insurer for its customers.

He moved into the insurance sector in 2012, having previously done various marketing roles in other parts of the financial services sector.

Much of Wayne’s work has been around understanding customers: their expectations and behaviours, their experience of the products and the brand, and the customer journey and all of its contact points. This is then turned into market segmentation and customer acquisition-and-retention strategies to deliver ROI.

Outside work Wayne is a keen footballer, having dabbled with becoming a professional when he was younger.

See the Travelers website for topical articles on issues affecting law firms.
