MUNICH, Germany, Sept 19 (Reuters) - Allianz’s Germany chief Manfred Knof will step down by the end of the year for health reasons and be replaced by Italy chief Klaus-Peter Roehler, the insurance giant said on Tuesday.
The new country head for Italy will be Giacomo Campora.
Allianz CEO Oliver Baete praised Roehler in a statement.
“He has a wealth of experience in the Property & Casualty business as well as in Life insurance. Under his leadership, Allianz in Italy made great strides in the digitalization of its Italian business.” (Reporting by Alexander Huebner; Writing by Tom Sims; Editing by Georgina Prodhan and Christoph Steitz)
