Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty (AGCS) has announced the appointment of Jarrod Schlesinger (pictured above) as regional head of financial lines for North America, effective Feb. 13.

In his new role, Schlesinger will be based in New York. He will report to Bill Scaldaferri, president and CEO of AGCS North America, with a matrix reporting line to Vanessa Maxwell, global head of financial lines. Schlesinger succeeds Joseph Caruso, who has left the company.

Schelsinger joins AGCS from Chubb, where he most recently served as chief operating officer for North American financial lines. Prior to that, he served in a variety of senior roles, including executive vice president within financial lines. Schlesinger has also held leadership roles at AIG and The Lexington Insurance Company.

“Jarrod has a stellar track record in the financial lines arena and is well-respected for his product strategy and market knowledge critical to growing our portfolio in North America,” Scaldaferri said. “I have no doubt he will be a phenomenal team leader, ready to take our business to the next level, particularly in the large corporate category.”

Schelsinger is the latest appointment for AGCS. In December, the company named Gabrielle Durisch its global head of ESG and sustainability solutions. In November, it promoted Martin Zschech to the newly created role of global head of industry solutions and client management.
