Allianz Commercial has announced the promotion of Paul Higham to the position of property account manager.
Higham’s appointment is the third appointment made in the newly aligned property and casualty team, said the company, which is a division of Allianz Insurance, based in Guildford, England and part of Allianz SE Group.
His move follows the promotion of Catherine Dixon’s to head of property and casualty and the appointment of Stuart Toal as casualty account manager earlier this year.
Higham will be responsible for managing and developing the commercial property account in line with the division’s business plan. Additionally, he will be focusing on improving segmentation and pricing capability within the competitive mid-corporate sector.
Since joining the insurer in 2002, Higham has held a number of positions including property and casualty underwriter, business developer, senior casualty underwriter and most recently, SME underwriting manager.
Catherine Dixon, head of property and casualty, Allianz Commercial said; “The promotion of Paul completes our restructure of the property and casualty accounts. Paul is an extremely skilled and experienced individual who has a deep understanding of the Allianz business. His promotion is testament to Allianz’s culture of nurturing talent and developing expertise.
She continued: “With Paul and Stuart now in place, we can set about hitting our ambitious growth target in the challenging mid corporate space. At the heart of this will be the continued development of our underwriting strategy and the enhancement of our pricing and propositions portfolio.”
