GT Insurance’s incoming CEO Tony Dodd has the backing of parent company Allianz.

The motor specialist last week announced Mr Dodd, who became deputy CEO last month, will take on the job in January after MD Glenn Lambert retires at the end of the year.

“[He] is a strong leader who brings to the role a wealth of experience and industry knowledge,” Allianz Australia MD Richard Feledy said.

“I’m confident he is well equipped to navigate the unique challenges that lie ahead in order to create new opportunities for the business, and I am looking forward to this exciting new chapter in the growth of GT Insurance under [his] leadership.”

Before his current role, Mr Dodd served the last four years as GM Sales and Distribution. He joined the business in 2006.

GT offers a range of heavy motor and transport covers including commercial, motor fleet, carriers’ transit and public liability.
