Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty (AGCS), Allianz Group’s specialist corporate insurer, has announced that Baptists Ossena, global product leader for hull and marine liabilities (HML), will assume additional responsibility as the North American regional head of HML, effective April 01.
For his new role, Ossena will relocate from Paris to New York. He will report to John Kiernan, the current head of HML in North America. Kiernan will take responsibility for large account management and portfolio steering across the business, Allianz said.

“We are extremely pleased with the growth and production of our marine business under John’s direction,” said Rich Soja, North American head of marine and global head of inland marine. “Adding Baptiste to the leadership team will serve as a significant resource for clients while strengthening and expanding our global footprint.”
