Arity President Gary Hallgren

Gary Hallgren is the President of Arity, a mobility, technology, and data analytics company that grew out of Allstate and is focused on helping organizations through the changing pace of transportation. In 2016, Allstate recognized its unique ability to identify and quantify risky driving. Rather than keeping the technology to themselves, Allstate recognized the strategic asset it had forming Arity in the process. Prior to joining Arity, Gary was the President of Connected Car at Allstate. November 11, 2019

419: Arity President Gary Hallgren highlights the three main issues in the transportation industry. Most importantly, driving is extremely inefficient as the average car is used for four percent of the day. Further, 40,000 people die on the roads each year, and driving is extremely expensive, both in time and money. To make a difference in these areas, Arity is working with shared mobility companies, insurance companies, and automobile companies to solve these issues. We also discuss why Gary believes fully autonomous vehicles are further away than many think, how the company mixes the stability, strength, and resources of a Fortune 80 company with the entrepreneurial spirit of a startup, how Arity attracts talent, among other topics.
