Allianz has announced the appointment of Joe Roberts as its new speciality lines underwriting manager.
Roberts joined the firm for 22 years, previously holding roles such as development underwriter at Allianz’s Woking branch.
He joined the account team in 2010 where he was responsible for managing Allianz Insurance’s accident and health account.
In 2017, Roberts was promoted to senior account underwriter for all speciality lines and facility placements.
As part of his new role, Roberts will be responsible for overseeing the technical account management of the Allianz commercial speciality lines portfolio.
Roberts will manage the strategic direction of the portfolio, and attempt to instill technical underwriting and analytical skills across the firm.
Stuart Toal, the firm’s casualty account manager, said: “Joe has a proven track record and has achieved a huge amount during his time at Allianz.
“I’m delighted to announce his appointment and have no doubt that his experience and knowledge of the business will help to cement our position, and grow our reputation in these important markets.”
