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.”
