Effective July 1, 2021, a new division for Global Commercial insurance was established under Chris Townsend, Member of the Allianz SE Board of Management responsible for Global Insurance Lines & Anglo Markets, Reinsurance, Middle East and Africa. The Global Commercial Group Center will enable a dedicated focus on the P&C commercial sector, which represents a significant, organic growth opportunity for the Group.
Global Commercial brings together and builds on the substantial resources and expertise within the Allianz Group, to drive benefits to our customers and distribution partners.
“We are excited about the opportunities this division represents for customers and our businesses,” said Oliver Bäte, CEO of Allianz SE. “Current market conditions make the timing perfect to bring a dedicated focus to our commercial P&C business.”
“These changes will improve our underwriting capabilities and customer propositions right across the commercial sector, but with a particular focus on the mid-market business outcomes, and enable profitable growth, while driving enhancements in our client service,” said Chris Townsend.
