AXA UK swoops for Allianz hire

Sarah Mallaby (pictured) – whose credentials span years spent at Zurich, Aviva, and Allianz – will soon be part of the AXA UK team in her new capacity as distribution and trading director for the insurer’s commercial business.

“I know AXA to be a team of very talented people with a true focus on innovation and future-proofing the market and business operations, so I couldn’t be happier to be joining the commercial business,” said Mallaby, who will start on October 04.

“I am ready to jump in and drive profitable growth through increased customer value and improved services for broker partners and customers. I’m very much looking forward to working with key broker partners to understand how we can deliver value for them and our mutual customers.”

Mallaby brings more than two decades of industry experience, most recently serving as director of broker markets at Allianz Insurance. At AXA, she will sit on the commercial executive committee and will be in charge of the performance and development of the commercial branch network, and of the enhancement of strategic broker relationships.      

Commenting on the appointment, AXA Commercial chief executive Jon Walker stated: “I am delighted to welcome Sarah to the AXA Commercial team. With her extensive experience in the industry, I am certain she will add real value as we advance our new smart working approach and continue to grow our relationships with brokers, with our customers at the very heart of all we do.”
