Allianz Partners has announced the appointment of Diane Babson (pictured) as chief financial officer for Allianz Care, the company’s international healthcare brand. Babson succeeds Frank Mee, who retired as finance director and deputy CEO.
Babson joined Allianz Partners in 2015 as CFO for the US and Americas Region. She holds a degree in accounting from the University of Massachusetts and an MBA from the University of North Carolina-Wilmington.
“Diane is a seasoned finance executive with vast experience, and we are delighted she is joining us following a number of very successful years leading the finance operations for the US and Americas,” said Allianz Care CEO Ida Luka-Lognoné. “Diane is a strong leader and strategic business partner, and I am very much looking forward to working with her at Allianz Care.”
Babson’s appointment comes as Mee retires after more than 30 years with Allianz. Mee joined the company in 1986 and was one of the founders of the international health line of business.
“It has been a privilege for me to work alongside Frank since I joined the company,” Luka-Lognoné said. “His dedication to the business and wealth of knowledge has always been an enormous asset to the team. I wish him a happy and fulfilling retirement.”
