Allianz Worldwide Partners has announced four CEO appointments in Asia-Pacific and North America.

Adrian O’Brien is named CEO of Allianz Worldwide Partners for Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia; Xavier Mauriac is promoted to CEO of Allianz Worldwide Partners Japan; Renato Mattos takes on CEO role for Allianz Global Assistance in New Zealand, replacing Phil Hibbert, who moves to become CEO of Allianz Global Assistance in Canada.

Adrian said, ‘I am focused on building an efficient and effective business that every member of our team can be proud of in each of the three countries. I’m also particularly interested in setting up the first independent national roadside assistance program in Indonesia, diversifying into travel insurance in Malaysia and expanding our insurance business in Singapore.’

Xavier said, ‘I am looking forward to building on my background in sales and marketing, especially in e-commerce, to continue the transformation of Allianz Worldwide Partners’ Japanese business.

Meanwhile, Renato said, ‘My main focus will be diversifying the business offerings and strengthening our relationships with current partners. I have been part of the Allianz family for over 14 years, working with various parts of the business in many different markets and I am looking forward to the exciting new challenges this new role will bring.’

He replaced Phil, who is moving to Canada for his new role.

He said, ‘I’m delighted to be joining Allianz Global Assistance Canada as its new CEO. The Canadian operation has made the most of its recent merger with TIC Travel Insurance Coordinators, achieving high growth in its ambition to be the leading provider of travel insurance and assistance services. I’m looking forward to leading the Canadian team in building on this momentum, while finding new ways to improve service for our partners and customers.’
