Allianz appoints 2 strategic account managers
Allianz Insurance has announced the appointment of Samantha Brand and Julie O’Donovan (pictured above) to the roles of strategic account manager.
Samantha and Julie will be responsible for managing and setting the direction for a number of Allianz’s strategic accounts and network partnerships. They will support the development of Allianz’s distribution strategy to meet the changing needs of the business as well as working to strengthen partnership benefits for the customer, broker and Allianz.
Julie joined Allianz Ireland in 2008 as an underwriter and has since held a variety of roles across the Allianz Group, including senior business developer in the southern region for Allianz Insurance and key account manager for Allianz Australia. Her most recent position was as senior business developer for Allianz Insurance’s London region, where she drove the agenda for the management of key accounts in the market and played an active role in driving distribution excellence.
Samantha previously worked for LV= General Insurance Group as strategic distribution director within the general insurance business of Legal & General. During that time, she was responsible for leading new business relationships with major brands across the media, telecoms and banking sectors. Previously she was head of strategy for Legal & General’s life insurance, general insurance and group protection businesses, responsible for setting strategy at a senior executive level across the combined insurance business.
Nick Hobbs, director of broker markets, Allianz Insurance, said:
“I’m delighted to welcome Samantha and Julie to the team. They bring with them a breadth of knowledge from their previous distribution and account management roles. I’m confident that their experience across a wide range of markets, brought to bear, will make a real difference to how we work with our broker partners and I’m looking forward to having them on the team.”
