Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty (AGCS) has added Jenise Klein as its new North America Regional Head of Property.
Klein replaces Jill Knecht, who is set to depart the company after 17 years.
Klein joined Allianz in 2015 as a member of the AGCS Alternative Risk Transfer (ART) team based in New York
During her time in Capital Solutions, she was focused on the Corporate Property space and managed a large corporate property program and structuring reinsurance for both Capital Solutions and NA Property portfolios.
Klein then transitioned to the NA Property team earlier this year as Senior Underwriting Product Head and has been leading a priority targeted growth initiative for this line of business.
“Jenise is a seasoned leader who is well respected by colleagues, clients and peers and brings a breadth of results-driven insurance and reinsurance experience to her new role,” stated Bill Scaldaferri, President and CEO, AGCS North America.
“I’d like to thank Jill for her contributions to AGCS over the past 17 years and look forward to working with Jenise to continue our expanded growth strategy in the North American market with our clients and brokers as our central focus.”
