Allianz Insurance has appointed Stuart Toal to the newly created role of head of mid-corporate.

Reporting to chief underwriting officer, Catherine Dixon, Toal will lead the mid-corporate business, playing a part in defining the strategy for property, casualty, motor trade and engineering construction and power as well as working closely with regional and global commercial colleagues.

He joined Allianz in 2015 as casualty account manager. Prior to that he worked for AIG as the casualty chief underwriting officer, and interim head of casualty.

Following, and as a result of Toal’s appointment, Allianz has promoted Helen Bancroft to the position of casualty account manager.

Reporting to Toal, she joined Allianz in 2002 on the graduate scheme and has since worked in a variety of senior underwriting roles across the Allianz branch network including Milton Keynes, Maidstone and London.

Dixon said: “I’m delighted to announce these two appointments. As we continue to shape our Commercial business, it’s crucial that we can count on the talent and expertise of our people and both Stuart and Helen bring not only experience to their new roles but also a great understanding of an ever-competitive market and changing world.

“We’re known for our technical excellence so I look forward to working with both of them in what is an exciting and challenging time for underwriting as we drive our ambitions forward.”
