Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty SE (AGCS), Allianz Group’s specialist carrier for corporate insurance business, has added Hans-Joerg Mauthe as Regional Chief Executive Officer for Central & Eastern Europe (CEE).
Mauthe, who joined Allianz in 1990 as a trainee in Frankfurt, will be responsible for the German market and for AGCS activities in Austria, Switzerland and Eastern Europe from April 1, 2019.
“The CEE region is the cornerstone on which AGCS has been built, and deserves dedicated leadership which is exclusively focused on this important region,” said AGCS CEO Chris Fischer Hirs.
“I am therefore delighted that Hans-Joerg, who knows this region better than anyone, is taking on the role of Regional CEO.”
Mauthe has reportedly played a key role in shaping developments in the CEE region for more than 13 years, initially as Head of Liability in 2005 and later in 2011 as Head of Market Management.
Since 2012, he has been closely involved in the operational management of the region as deputy to the respective CEOs.
Commenting on his appointment, Mauthe said, “Central & Eastern Europe is an important region that has been my professional home at AGCS for many years.”
“After years as deputy, I am delighted to now lead AGCS CEE as CEO, continuing to work together with my colleagues to support our clients and brokers across the region and internationally.”
