Allianz has appointed Samatha Brand and Julie O’Donovan as two of its new strategic account managers.
Both will be responsible for managing and setting the direction for a number of Allianz’s strategic accounts and network partnerships.
O’Donovan 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.
Nick Hobbs, director of broker markets at Allianz, 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.”
