Allianz Insurance has made changes within its commercial business, adding four regional managers, who will each be responsibility for the engineering construction & power (EC&P) distribution and underwriting operations.
The re/insurer has made these changes to bring together the former Commercial Broker Markets and the EC&P trading businesses.
Chris Everett will lead the North, Northern Ireland & Scotland region, with Mike Thomas, leading the Southern region.
They are joined by Patrick Flannery, head of Midlands, South West and Wales followed by Tom Leonard who will head London, Lloyds & London Market Real Estate.
Allianz’s aim is to expand its regional market presence and build on its expert focus whilst enabling simplicity, efficiency and agility in decision making.
This will also create further opportunities for its people to develop themselves, with some new roles and broader responsibilities.
Allianz also announced that Jonathan Oldfield has been appointed to the newly created role of head of customer and distribution for EC&P.
He will report to Chief Distribution and Regions Officer, Nick Hobbs, and work within and across the new regional structure, leading continued development of the EC&P specialism.
Hobbs commented: “Bringing together the two parts of the business with different expertise and utilising their strengths to help each other, that is a great combination and has huge potential for further success.
“We believe this move sets us up to bring the best of Allianz to all of our customers and brokers.”
