Following the retirement of Martyn Davenport, Allianz Insurance has appointed Alastair Warren-Upham as new London markets manager.
In his new position, Alastair will oversee the distribution strategy for Allianz’s London branches and engagement with the London market.
He joined Allianz in 2009 on the corporate management programme and since then he has moved up through the business. Starting in the market management team, he then progressed to property, casualty and motor underwriter in London, followed by distribution manager for Allianz London Market Real Estate (LMRE), before becoming key account manager for the London region.
He most recently served as a strategic account manager, where he managed and set the strategic direction for the relationships with some of Allianz’s largest broker accounts at a national level.
Nick Hobbs, Allianz’s director of broker markets, said: “I’d like to thank Martyn for the fantastic contribution he has made to our business during his 19 years here. We wish him all the very best for the future. He is well succeeded by Alastair who has done a sterling job as a strategic account manager, playing a key role in some very significant initiatives and projects.”
Tom Leonard, regional manager, London, added: “We are delighted to welcome someone of Alastair’s calibre back to London. He will be instrumental to further developments for Allianz in the London region.”
