Allianz Commercial has reshaped its executive responsibilities to meet challenges of the market and reflect the ‘outstanding talent’ within the business.
Chris Little moves from his role as head of SME direct markets to director, engineering markets, replacing Neil Clutterbuck who was appointed director, underwriting and technical, commercial earlier this year.
David Martin, previously head of SME affinity and broker markets, has been named director of SME markets, adding responsibility for the Allianz-owned direct business insurance specialist, Premierline, to his existing remit.
Chris Hanks, general manager, Allianz Commercial, said: “Two of our great strengths are stability and consistency so I am delighted that we have been able to realign our executive team internally, reflecting the outstanding talent we have in our business.
“Chris and David have already demonstrated outstanding leadership during their time with the Company and their skills and capabilities will help us meet the future challenges of the market as we continue to outperform our competitors.”
He added: “Having spent the past three years as a member of our Executive team, heading our Premierline business, Chris understands the challenges of the Engineering market and will move seamlessly into his new position.
“The broadening of David’s responsibilities ensures that all SME business will report into a single director, enabling greater knowledge sharing and consistency which I am confident will facilitate more growth.”
