Now Health International appoints Matt Pinckard to head up Singapore growth plans


SINGAPORE, June 29, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Now Health International, the award-winning international private medical insurance (IPMI) provider, has appointed Matt Pinckard as General Manager of its Singapore operations to lead the company’s business in the region.

Reporting into Rob McIntyre, Now Health International’s Chief Distribution Officer, Pinckard will lead the company’s drive to introduce new innovations and technologies in the health insurance sector, building on its recent years of growth. This includes addressing the need among family offices, financial advisory firms and brokers in Singapore for affordable regional and international medical insurance plans.

Singapore’s insurance industry is one of the most developed in Asia and continues to grow, and Pinckard’s appointment comes as Now Health International continues to position itself as a global market leader in deploying technology to deliver its services in the health insurance sector.


Now Health’s flagship WorldCare plans broke the mould for IPMI when they launched in 2011. They were among the first products to offer digital cards within smartphone wallets and have become renowned for their fast and accurate claims service and state of the art digital tools.

Pinckard joins Now Health International from his previous role as Senior Manager at Singlife with Aviva and brings over 16 years’ experience in the insurance industry, which includes roles at Aviva and Zurich.

Zahir Sharif, CEO, Now Health International, said: “The IPMI landscape continues to change at pace, particularly when it comes to the central role technology plays in service delivery to both our intermediary partners and our members, and no more so than in Singapore.

“Matt’s experience in the sector and specifically in Singapore is second to none, and I’m delighted to welcome him to our team as we continue to explore growth opportunities in the Singapore market.”

Pinckard added: “Technology is reshaping the health insurance marketplace, ensuring providers can cater to the needs of both broker partners and their members, and Now Health International is at the forefront of this evolution.

“I’m delighted to join Now Health International and look forward to helping the business meet and exceed its objectives both locally and globally in the coming months and years.”
