Allianz Engineering has appointed Peter Milton (pictured) as chief engineer, effective 3 October, to succeed Peter Carless who retired at the end of September.

Peter Milton’s career spans more than three decades in the inspection and insurance industry. A chartered engineer with a diploma in Company Direction, he brings a wealth of experience, which will be very valuable as Allianz Engineering rolls out a new business strategy.

After graduating in mechanical engineering, he started his career at HSB Engineering Insurance, progressing to managing director. In that role, he helped the engineering division navigate technical and operational challenges, including the transfer of the business from AIG to Munich Re.

Peter Milton has sat on the board of the Safety Assessment Federation (SAFed) for 12 years, including five as chairman. As such, he has been an advocate for high standards of technical competence and health and safety in the statutory inspection and engineering services sector.

After a stint as managing director for testing and certification provider Lloyds British, he has worked as a consultant, before joining Allianz.

Peter Milton reports to chief claims officer Graham Gibson, who commented: “Peter Carless has done a splendid job, bringing together our engineering functions and getting that part of the business ready for the next stage of our strategy. On behalf of the board and his former colleagues, I want to thank him warmly and wish him all the best on his retirement.

“I’d like also to welcome – equally warmly – Peter Milton, who is bringing skills and experience that we will be calling upon in the coming months, when we unveil a new strategy for our engineering business. He is a great addition to the team as we embark on an exciting (and safe!) journey.”
