Allianz announces the appointment of John Berry as the new chief risk officer for Allianz Holdings and Allianz Insurance.
In his new role he will have oversight of the risk management framework at Allianz, including the direct management of the risk function at Allianz Insurance.
Since the beginning of this year John has been working as interim chief risk officer for Allianz Holdings and Allianz Insurance, following Karina Schreiber’s return to Germany to take on a new role at Allianz SE. Berry will work closely with Kieran O’Keeffe, chief risk officer for LV= General Insurance, following the acquisition by Allianz Holdings of the LV= General Insurance Group.
Berry joined the business in 2015 as senior retail actuary and was later appointed to head of pricing, personal lines. In April 2017 he was then appointed as director, underwriting and technical for personal lines.
Prior to joining Allianz, he worked as an actuarial consultant in the UK and overseas, specialising in pricing, underwriting, data and strategy.
Jon Dye, Allianz CEO, said: “I am delighted that John has joined our management board to take on the role of chief risk officer for Allianz Holdings and Allianz Insurance. He has a fantastic track record of delivering results for our business and brings a wealth of experience to the position. His appointment demonstrates that we have an excellent talent pool which allows us promote from within.”
