“I am inspired by Abhishek and Saurabh’s vision of making health insurance accessible to thousands of companies.

I want to be a part of this disruption and enable quality healthcare for businesses to make the lives of their employees safer and better,” said Aditya Bagarka who joins Plum as Head, Strategy and Innovation.
