Allianz Insurance has announced the appointments of Amy Crouch and Mark Terry to the roles of strategic account manager.
Both will be responsible for managing and setting the direction for some of Allianz’s national strategic accounts and networks. In their new positions they will maintain and strengthen key relationships with Allianz’s broker accounts and play a role in evolving its distribution strategy.
Mark joins the Broker Distribution Management team from Woking where, for the past two years, he led the sales team and service proposition in his role as distribution manager, having originally joined the branch from Chelmsford where he held the equivalent role. Prior to this Mark worked for the director of broker markets where he gained strategic insight into the Broker Markets function and national distribution strategy. Mark has been at Allianz for 14 years having first joined Claims, before undertaking a number of roles in Underwriting and Business Development across three different UK regions.
Amy re-joins Allianz from AXA Insurance, where she spent the last five years in the strategic management team looking after some of their largest broker accounts. She brings with her strong relationships with a number of key brokers, as well as a detailed knowledge of the UK insurance market.
Nick Hobbs, director of broker markets said:
“I’m delighted to welcome Mark, and particularly to welcome back Amy. Their experience in various broker management roles, within and outside Allianz, adds another dimension to our development capabilities. They will undoubtedly allow us to serve our brokers partners, our customers and our other stakeholders even better”.
