Allianz Engineering has strengthened its management team with the promotions of Natalie Holbrook and Anneke Graham. The moves come as the division looks to push forward with an ambitious growth plan.
Natalie, previously engineering underwriter working out of the London branch, has been promoted to the position of regional operations manager (southern), while Anneke, has been promoted from senior underwriter to underwriting manager and now has responsibility for a team of head office underwriters.
Natalie’s new remit will be to manage, develop and support the Southern team in the delivery of its operational results, contributing towards strategy, projects and budgets. She will be responsible for ensuring that regional priorities and statutory and regulatory obligations are fulfilled.
In her new position, Anneke will lead the underwriting team to deliver profitable growth, maintain excellent underwriting standards and develop new, quality products. She will also be involved in several high profile development projects.
Claire Buck, engineering underwriting account manager, commented: “We are all delighted that we have been able to fill these key roles by promoting from within. This demonstrates the huge talent and potential we have within our business and the reward to be gained by investing in capable individuals - both will be great assets to our management team.”
She continued: “Natalie and Anneke’s appointments will allow us to focus on strengthening both our insurance and inspection propositions - both of which will play a significant part in achieving our ambitious growth targets.”
