Allianz Insurance has appointed Alastair Warren-Upham to the role of London markets manager.
In his new position, Alastair will oversee the distribution strategy for Allianz’s London branches and engagement with the London market.
Joining Allianz in 2009 on the corporate management programme, Alastair has moved up through the business. Starting in the market management team, he 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.

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”.
Allianz’s regional manager, London, Tom Leonard 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”.
