Allianz Insurance has named Jonathon Gray as its new motor manager in its Manchester branch.
In his new role, Jonathon will be heading up Manchester’s motor team with the aim of continuing to profitably grow in this key region. He will have responsibility for all of Allianz’s motor underwriting activity in Manchester, as well as the training and technical development of the team.
Having joined the organisation through Allianz’s Underwriting Graduate Scheme in 2010, Jonathon has held a variety of roles in motor fleet and underwriting. He worked his way up from graduate underwriter to senior commercial motor underwriter, in both the north region and head office. Most recently he has spent the past two years as Allianz’s branch motor manager for Woking, where he performed a similar role managing a team of ten underwriters.
Allianz’s Manchester branch manager, Stuart Darroch said:
“It’s a pleasure to welcome Jonathon to the Manchester team. Having worked his way up through the business, gaining insight and experience from Allianz’s head office, Leeds, Newcastle and Woking branches, his knowledge and expertise will be invaluable.
“Manchester continues to be a pivotal office and I have every confidence he will continue to build and strengthen Allianz’s motor account across the North West.”
