Allianz continues regional broker relationship development with two distribution manager appointments

Posted: 10 March 2021


Allianz Insurance has appointed Matt Pask and Chris Long as its new distribution managers for Chelmsford and Glasgow.

Both joined the company as part of different graduate schemes, with Pask joining the Corporate Management Trainee scheme in 2014, and Long joining the Commercial Insurance Grad Programme in 2015.

Since completing the scheme, Pask has progressed steadily, holding positions in Leeds, Woking and Guildford. He has now joined the Chelmsford branch where he will oversee the distribution strategy for the branch and engagement with the local insurance market.

Long, on the other hand, went on to hold various key roles. Most recently based in Guildford, as partnerships manager within the SME business.


Sarah Mallaby, director of broker markets, Allianz Insurance said: 

“Another great example of Allianz nurturing talent and encouraging those to work from the ground up.

“In a few years, these talented individuals have gone from a trainee graduate scheme, to a position of real responsibility. That is a real testament of their skills and of Allianz’s commitment to invest in the future of this industry.

“With times as they are, with continued restrictions and lockdowns, it is now more important than ever that communication and clarity with brokers is maintained. That’s why we are developing our skills still and promoting the best people to fill those broker facing roles.

“Congratulations to both Matt and Chris, and good luck.”
