Allianz announces two distribution manager promotions

The appointees, Matt Pask and Chris Long, are set to join the firm’s Chelmsford and Glasgow branches

Allianz Insurance has appointed Matt Pask and Chris Long as its new distribution managers for Chelmsford and Glasgow.

Both joined the company as part of different graduate schemes, with Pask joining the Corporate Management Trainee scheme in 2014, and Long joining the Commercial Insurance Grad Programme in 2015.

Since completing the scheme, Pask has “progressed steadily”, holding positions in Leeds, Woking and Guildford. He has now joined the Chelmsford branch where he “will oversee the distribution strategy for the branch and engagement with the local insurance market”.

Meanwhile, Long went on to hold various roles, most recently based in Guildford as partnerships manager within the SME business. He will join the firm’s Glasgow branch. 

Sarah Mallaby, director of broker markets, Allianz Insurance said: “[This is] another great example of Allianz nurturing talent and encouraging those to work from the ground up.

“In a few years, these talented individuals have gone from a trainee graduate scheme, to a position of real responsibility. That is a real testament of their skills and of Allianz’s commitment to invest in the future of this industry.”

She added: “With times as they are, with continued restrictions and lockdowns, it is now more important than ever that communication and clarity with brokers is maintained. That’s why we are developing our skills and promoting the best people to fill those broker facing roles.”
