Indianapolis-based cyber risk management firm Trava welcomes Charlie Wilmerding, president and CEO of Altus Partners, to the board of directors.

INDIANAPOLIS – June 11, 2021 – Indianapolis-based cyber risk management firm Trava announces the appointment of insurance industry veteran Charlie Wilmerding to its board of directors.

Charlie is the founder and CEO of Altus Partners, a comprehensive property and casualty insurance and risk management services company that’s been changing the way insurance is bought and managed since 1997. By eliminating commission from all insurance transactions and the conflict of interest that comes with it, Altus has been able to significantly lower their clients’ insurance costs year in and year out.

“Charlie’s deep experience and insight into the business insurance industry will be hugely valuable to us,” says Trava CEO Jim Goldman. “But more important is his untraditional approach. He built something unique with Altus, and his perspective will serve us well as we do the same with Trava.”

Trava offers small to mid-market businesses a comprehensive suite of products and services to assess, mitigate, and insure their companies against cyber threats. Goldman continues, “We look forward to Charlie’s input and help on the specific challenges that we face as a growing company in this industry.”

Charlie is a disruptor, dedicated to transforming industry standards and empowering brokers and clients alike with the power of objectivity. He states, “Trava’s unique combination of cutting-edge cyber risk management tools with data analytics and insurance gives small to mid-sized businesses a solution that will help them better navigate today’s increasingly challenging cyber landscape—a solution they can’t otherwise get from a single source in the market today. I look forward to helping Trava fulfill its promise to make a significant impact in mitigating cyber threats and providing peace of mind for its customers.”

Charlie joins Trava’s existing board members: Trava Co-founder and CEO Jim Goldman, Trava Co-founder and CTO Rob Beeler, High Alpha Managing Partner Scott Dorsey, and TDF Ventures Principal Matthew Bressler.
