Daniel R’bibo, Area Senior Vice President, Gallagher
Gallagher’s Daniel R’bibo claimed a 2018 Power Broker® award for helping a film production company cope with the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.
This year, he developed an insurance program to cover all film shoots for Airbnb Inc.’s marketing and online content globally.
The online marketplace and hospitality service hadn’t previously carried production insurance, so there was no track record to present to underwriters.
R’bibo and his team were nonetheless able to develop a blanket policy covering everything from ziplining shoots to surfing footage.
“We have operations across the globe, with shoots happening last minute simultaneously on multiple projects on multiple continents almost every week,” said Airbnb’s Bo Wright. “To say that our program is complicated is an understatement.
“We’re thankful to have Daniel as a trusted advisor to guide us through the design phase of our program and serve as an operational partner we can count on. His team provides white glove service to our producers and are always keen to educate and ensure that we all work together in a way that enables the business and accelerates our production cycle.”
Beau Marks of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) department of film, television and digital media, said that R’bibo has also helped in explaining to UCLA and its students the importance of workers’ compensation insurance.
