Artificial Intelligence and Insurance: Opportunities, Risks and Trasnformation
OLEA Gabon was one of the partners of the 5th edition of the Port-Gentil 10km which took place on April 8, 2023. Clément Chadeau, Managing Director of OLEA Gabon tells us about OLEA Gabon's involvement in this event.
What is the Port-Gentil 10km?
As its name implies, this is a ten-kilometer race held every year in Port Gentil. This year, the 5th edition was jointly launched by the President of the Republic, His Excellency Ali Bongo Ondimba, and Mr. François Perrodo, Chairman of the Perenco Group, the race's main and historic sponsor. The POG 10km calls itself "the fastest in Africa", as it brings together some of the world's top professionals, including Sir Mo Farah, four-time Olympic track and field champion, who was finalizing his training on the continent in preparation for the forthcoming London Marathon. Needless to say, the level of competition was very high for the OLEA team who took part in the race! Finally, in recognition of its excellent organization, the race was awarded the Gold Race label by World Athletics for the first time.
How and why did you become a sponsor of this event?
We were asked by the Perenco Group in Gabon, of which we are also the broker, to replace the event's previous partner and become the official broker for the POG 10 km. After starting a partnership with the National Football League as an official broker, it seemed natural to us to support this event as a broker for athletes and sport!
What role did OLEA Gabon play at this event?
As official broker, OLEA Gabon provided the race organization with civil liability insurance for the event, among other contributions. This was a major commitment, because with an elite group (the world's best runners) and 13,000 runners taking part in all the competitions, the challenge was as much sporting as it was to insure the event.
A final word?
In addition to the Perenco Group, which enabled us to take part in this great event, we'd like to thank the Everest Media organization for its immense professionalism and the quality of the time we spent together. We look forward to seeing you at the Run in Masuku (10 km in Franceville) and the Gabon Marathon!
