Allianz UK boosts SME and corporate partner team


By Terry Gangcuangco

Allianz Insurance Plc has made a trio of appointments for its SME (small- and medium-sized enterprises) and corporate partner team.

Hayley Colraine, who came onboard in 2010 on the insurer’s graduate scheme, has been named SME branch manager in Lancaster. The role will see her working closely with Allianz branches and managing relationships with brokers and partners.

Twelve-year company veteran Marie Doherty, meanwhile, has become partnership manager for the corporate partner division. The former key account manager will be taking the lead on Allianz’s corporate partner arrangements.

Also joining the team is Chris Long in his new capacity as partnership manager in charge of driving the company’s profitable growth ambitions across corporate partner and SME. Long previously served as executive assistant to the broker markets directors.

Commenting on the changes, SME and corporate partner distribution head Stephen Taylor (pictured) said: “I am thrilled to be announcing three new appointments to the SME and corporate partner team. It’s also extremely rewarding to be able to promote people from within, which is a testament to the talented people we have working at Allianz.

“Hayley, Marie, and Chris all bring different qualities with them to their roles, and I have no doubt that they will complement each other with their extensive knowledge and expertise. I wish them every success in their new roles.”
