Allstate’s Arity to open West Coast offices

Data and analytics company Arity, the one that’s kind of like a startup but with the full funding of Allstate, has announced its plans to open two additional offices in San Francisco and Palo Alto, in addition to its existing gig in Chicago. Why? Talent, that’s why. “Through our parent company, we have more than 85 years of experience assessing risks on the road, more than 20 billion miles of historical driving and engine diagnostics data, and unmatched insight into cars and the people driving them. What we don’t have is you”, wrote Arity president Gary Hallgren on LinkedIn. Keyword: you.
