International leader in assistance services, Allianz Global Assistance (AGA), has appointed Craig Dalzell to the position of Chief Executive Officer (CEO), effective immediately.
Craig has been in the role of acting CEO since January 2016, following the departure of John Myler, and was formerly AGA Australia’s Chief Financial Officer since September 2014.
Prior to joining AGA, Craig was the Director Advisory Services Financial Management with KPMG. He brings over 20 years’ experience across multiple industries, including government and health sectors, and a proven track record in delivering results and organisational transformations.
In his new role, Craig will focus on product expansion within the health portfolio to build a value offering for larger corporate clients. Additionally, he will be looking to introduce a range of home and lifestyle products, building upon AGA’S 15-year relationship with the Department of Veteran Affairs.
Commenting on his appointment, Craig said: “I’m delighted to be officially taking the reins as CEO at Allianz Global Assistance Australia. In the three months I’ve been acting in the position we’ve maintained a strong focus on strategic planning and I feel we’ve successfully accelerated our abilities on a number of new projects.
“The Health and Lifecare arm of the business is a growth market for us moving forward and I’ll be continuing to shape its product portfolio to cater to larger business, as well as the small to medium clients we already work with.”
