Veteran industry executive Jody Yee has been appointed global industry solution director for technology, media and telecom (TMT) at Allianz Global Corporate and Specialty (AGCS). Throughout his 18 years in corporate insurance and alternative risks transfer, he has specialised in developing innovative solutions to drive growth and scale business development.
Yee’s appointment follows the successful launch of the Financial Services industry practice in 2020 with Paul Schiavone as a global industry solution director. Both are reporting to Jeremy Sharpe as AGCS Global Head of Distribution. According to the company, similar role will be announced for the construction industry in due course. AGCS has introduced these new global functions as part of the New AGCS transformation programme to tailor product development, marketing and distribution to specific industries: Global Industry Solution Directors will build special risk expertise for their sectors and help developing bespoke solutions across all AGCS lines of business as well as other Allianz units.
Henning Haagen, AGCS Board Member and Chief Regions and Markets Officer for AGCS’s business outside North America, welcomed Jody Yee joining the Global Distribution team and added that: “We are eager to develop a special value proposition for our key target sectors and the Global Industry Solution Directors are at the heart of it. With Jody Yee we have found the perfect first advocate for clients and brokers in the technology, media and telecom space. He will drive the development of bespoke solutions for them in the wide Allianz universe – be it traditional insurance products, global programs and increasingly also alternative risk transfer and captive support.”Click below to share this article
