Allianz names new head of commercial lines pricing news

Claire Buck (pictured) has been promoted at Allianz Insurance Plc, the UK operations of German group Allianz, to the role of commercial lines pricing head.

The company stalwart, who came onboard in 2004 on the corporate management trainee scheme, most recently served as account manager for engineering, construction and power, where she was in charge of the overall portfolio, strategic direction, and delivery.

Buck’s new remit will see the elevated executive take responsibility for leading the development of pricing capability for the insurer’s commercial business. She will also be looking at changing technologies and leveraging them to open up new data opportunities for underwriting.

“I am delighted that Claire will be taking up this exciting and influential role,” commented Allianz Insurance commercial underwriting director Catherine Dixon.

“Commercial pricing is an area we are heavily investing in and have ambitious plans for; therefore, Claire’s deep understanding of our business and a proven track record in senior leadership roles will ensure future success.”
