Ex-Allianz leader joins Zurich

Zurich Australian Insurance has strengthened its strategic relationship management capabilities with a new hire.

David Foote, who joins Zurich from Allianz, where he was most recently key account manager, will take the role of national relationship leader, focused on key international broker partners.

Foote has more than two decades of experience across the insurance industry in relationship management and business development roles, including 13 years at Chubb, nearly three years at Pacific Underwriting, and more than two years at Marsh.

“Our ambition is to deliver a ‘best in class’ distribution capability and David’s energy, experience, and strategic view of the intermediated insurance market aligns perfectly with this ambition,” said Giles Crowley, chief distribution and deal management officer. “David is highly regarded within the industry and he brings strong relationships with our key broker partners. I look forward to working with him as we seek to drive an even deeper understanding of our broker partners’ strategies and align our own strategies accordingly.”
