Oliver Bäte, Chief Executive Officer of Allianz SE, said: “I would like to thank Manfred Knof for his successful leadership at Allianz Deutschland. The company played a leading role time and again in implementing the Renewal Agenda. I regret his decision but respect and support it and wish Manfred all the best for the future. I am convinced that we have found the right successor in Klaus-Peter Röhler. He has a wealth of experience in the Property & Casualty business as well as in Life insurance. Under his leadership, Allianz in Italy made great strides in the digitalization of our Italian business.”

The decisions await standard checks and approvals by the relevant regulatory authorities.
