AGCS appoints NZ manager
Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty (AGCS) has appointed Kevin Northcott as Country Manager for New Zealand, effective from August 1.
He replaces Shanil Williams, who will relocate to Munich to be Global Head of Commercial.
AGCS says it has expanded its business model across the Asia-Pacific region, including in New Zealand, and Mr Northcott will be responsible for pushing further growth.
He joined Allianz in April 2005 and has more than 40 years’ experience in the insurance industry.
Originally from New Zealand, he has worked for Allianz in Australia, Hong Kong and London. His most recent role was head of financial lines, based in London.
AGCS says his successor there will be announced “in due course”.
