Allianz specialty unit promotes Mike Hansen to lead global aviation


Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty S.E. on Thursday said Mike Hansen has been named global head of aviation, effective immediately. 

He replaces Henning Haagen, who was appointed Northeast zone executive for North America earlier this year for the specialist corporate unit of Allianz S.E. 

Mr. Hansen, who oversees the North American aviation business of AGCS, will relocate from Canada to London later this year, AGCS said in a statement. He will report to Paul O’Neill, AGCS board member and chief underwriting officer, specialty. 

In his new role, Mr. Hansen will lead the overall aviation underwriting strategy. A successor for his regional position will be announced in the near future, AGCS said, and in the interim, he will maintain responsibility for both the global and North American markets.
