As part of its drive to expand its offer in the leisure space and increase its footprint of products, Allianz Partners UK (AzP) has promoted Joe Moore as the new Head of Travel, Tourism and Leisure. His appointment bolsters the success achieved by the firm over the past 12 months, which includes notable travel insurance client acquisitions in the banking sector such as Lloyds Banking Group and Revolut, enabling AzP to accelerate its growth plans.
Joe joined Allianz Partners UK more than ten years ago on the graduate trainee programme as a Business Development Executive. During that time, his work at AzP has spanned several roles including leading Allianz Solutions before he had the opportunity to spend three years working for Allianz Partners Australia in their business unit.
Returning to the UK in 2018, Joe joined what was then known as the Travel and Tourism team, focusing on managing relationships with several longstanding broker clients, from Campbell Irvine to Rush Insurance Services, amongst others.
Commenting on his promotion, Joe says: “Allianz Partners is a trusted and well recognised brand in the travel insurance and assistance markets and I’m excited to be leading this business at such a key time. There will be lots of opportunities to diversify into new areas; I’m looking forward to maximising these by nurturing the client relationships I’ve already built.”
Lee Taylor, Chief Sales Officer, added: “We’re thrilled to congratulate Joe on his well-deserved promotion. His track record since joining Allianz Partners UK speaks for itself. As we look to diversity into new products in the leisure sphere, it seemed an appropriate moment to rename the business ‘Travel, Tourism and Leisure’ to reflect the broader range of insurance products and services we now have on offer, ensuring we cater for a broader portfolio as we continue to develop profitable growth.”
Joe’s new role was effective 1 September 2022.
