Sanchia Groves LLM FCII (pictured) is taking on a newly created role at Allianz Insurance Plc.
After serving as senior underwriter and team leader for the Legal Protection operations for nearly five years, Groves will move up as underwriting manager. As part of the Allianz Legal Protection (ALP) management team, she will be in charge of leading ALP’s technical excellence agenda, the daily oversight of the technical team, as well as setting the direction of the unit’s after-the-event and before-the-event underwriting footprint.
Groves made the switch to Allianz in January 2014 from Liberty Mutual Insurance Europe Limited, where she spent more than a decade.
“We pride ourselves on the professional development of our people, so I’m delighted to see Sanchia take the next step in her career,” commented Peter Dobie, head of legal protection portfolio management. “This appointment not only demonstrates ALP’s strength in depth, but also our commitment to investing in capabilities that support our business partners.
“I have no doubt Sanchia’s broad business experience and in-depth technical knowledge will allow us to build and reaffirm our partnerships further.”
