Allianz Engineering has announced the appointment of Martin Ball to the newly created position of head of engineering inspection.
In his new position, Martin will oversee the strategic operational management of Allianz’s 600 Engineer surveyors. He will also be responsible for managing the Engineer Surveyor handheld device pilot which was launched last year which amongst other things, will facilitate on site inspection reporting.

Most recently, Martin was underwriting and operations manager. His responsibilities included Account Management, strategic oversight of the Engineering Insurance portfolio and the running of the operations and back office support functions.
Chris Little, director of engineering markets, Allianz Engineering, commented: “I am delighted that we have been able to re-shape the Engineering senior team as this gives us a dedicated senior management focus on our growing Technical operations function. Martin’s new role will undoubtedly support our intent to build on our market leading position in the Inspection market’’.
“He brings a deep understanding and experience to the table, which will strengthen the oversight of our Inspection team and will be a huge benefit to our customers.”
Claire White joined the senior management team as underwriting account manager last month.
