Gill to lead Allianz's 'refreshed' Newcastle branch


Allianz Commercial has appointed former northern regional underwriting manager Mike Gill to head up its Newcastle office.

Gill was previously based at the insurer's Leeds branch, where he spent nine years in his role as regional underwriting manager for the northern region.

In his new position, he will be responsible for leading the underwriting and new business teams at the Newcastle branch in order to maximise new opportunities in the region.

Andrew Broughton, director of broker markets for Allianz Commercial, said: "Mike is already well known in the Newcastle broker market and we believe that this key appointment provides an excellent opportunity for us to realise the full potential presented by the North East.

"Allianz remains fully committed to the Newcastle market and the process of building and strengthening our presence in the region is well underway. We have already appointed two senior production underwriters to the new team, who will join from the Leeds office at the beginning of June. We expect to finalise the remaining members of our refreshed branch and have them operating in Newcastle before the end of June."
