DETROIT, Jan. 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Floow, one of the world's fastest-growing telematics providers, has named John Kramer as Vice President and Head of North American operations. Kramer, who brings years of experience in managing both telematics and traditional insurance programs, will oversee The Floow's management, growth and expansion throughout the United States and Canada.

Based in Sheffield, England, The Floow opened its U.S. headquarters last September in Detroit. Combining advanced technology, data science and driver behavior training, The Floow provides drivers, insurers and auto manufacturers with an innovative telematics platform to increase driver safety and business profitability.
The four years prior to joining The Floow, Kramer worked as Director of Business Development and Customer Success for another telematics company, where he managed more than 18 insurance programs in North America. His prior experience also includes over a decade in the insurance industry, where he specialized in product, pricing and underwriting operations, and also gained expertise launching usage-based insurance programs.
"North America offers enormous opportunities for The Floow," Kramer said. "For the most part, it's still an open market for a telematics provider that can offer unique telematics solutions for every segment of the transportation spectrum, from the newest driver to the largest insurance or manufacturing giant.
"And making mobility safer and smarter for all is just what The Floow does, which is why I'm so excited to join the team," he added.
