Ben Woods

Senior Manager of Finance and Modeling
Allstate Dealer Services

Ben Woods is the Senior Manager of Finance and Modeling for Allstate Dealer Services (ADS). In this role he leads efforts to analyze loss, premium, and expense data to develop strategies which better position ADS for profitable growth.

Woods joined ADS in 2012 and has worked extensively on GAP ratemaking, reserving, and forecasting. He led the development of predictive models, which combine Allstate’s private passenger auto insurance claims data with its more than 15 years of GAP underwriting experience. These models profitably directed ADS pricing strategies through the recent years of rising GAP losses.

Woods is a Fellow of the Casualty Actuarial Society, author of “Deconstructing the GAP Crisis” (featured in P&A Magazine), and speaks frequently on the topic of GAP losses at industry events.
