Allianz Partners appoints new UK and Ireland CEO

Allianz Partners in the UK and Ireland have appointed Tim Tozer as their new chief executive officer.

Tozer, who was a director at Allianz Partners UK and Ireland (then Mondial Assistance) between 2002 and 2004, will rejoin Allianz in September 2018.

Tozer's most recent position has been group operations director at Vertu Motors, a motor retailer in the UK, a post he has held from March 2016. Prior to that, he was chairman and managing director of Vauxhall Motors & CEO of Opel Ireland for General Motors, and president of Mitsubishi Motors Europe.

Ida Luka-Lognoné, member of the Allianz Partners board, responsible for its Northern Europe, Middle East and Africa regions, commented: “As a proven, successful business leader, Tim will bring additional credibility and focus to the existing strong and ambitious management teams driving our successful UK and Ireland operations.

“This is an exciting time for Tim to be returning. Not only have both markets continued to grow their portfolio of extremely successful products and services spanning roadside assistance, warranty, travel insurance and international medical assistance, they have built a wider portfolio of customer care and retention services that exploit Allianz Partners’ global digital capabilities. We look forward to welcoming Tim as Allianz Partners UK and Allianz Partners Ireland continue to develop and deliver innovative, value adding product and service solutions for the assistance and insurance markets.”
