Allianz Holdings Shakes Up Executive Leadership Roster – Two Big Names Depart

Allianz Holdings has today revealed that Allianz Personal CEO Steve Treloar and Allianz UK CFO Fernley Dyson are stepping away from their respective roles to take on new opportunities.

In a Press release, the organization noted that Treloar, who joined LV= as MD in May 2016, became CEO of LV= General Insurance in December 2017, successfully leading the joint venture with Allianz. In 2021, he stepped up as CEO of Allianz Personal, a move to withdraw the Allianz UK personal brands and come together as one operating entity.

It was also revealed that Treloar will remain with the company until June 30, 2023, with the process to appoint a successor currently underway. Meanwhile, Dyson will see out his last day with Allianz UK on May 30.

Dyson first joined Allianz UK in January 2019 having previously served as CFO at Ageas and held several senior positions at Aviva. He will be succeeded by Ulf Lange, who is currently head of the business division for global lines and Anglo markets, Allianz SE. Subject to regulatory approval, Lange will join the business as CFO on May 30.

Lange, who joined Allianz in 2008, was credited in the Press release as having contributed significantly to the Allianz Group during his tenure with the company. He was previously CFO of Allianz Partners.

Commenting on the news, Colm Holmes, CEO of Allianz Holdings, said: “During a period of determined headwinds and exciting changes, Steve has played a crucial role in the success of our business. I would like to thank him for his significant contribution that has earned us the recognition of being one of the leading personal lines insurers in the UK. While a successor has not yet been appointed, I am thankful that Steve has agreed to work with the Allianz Personal senior leadership team to ensure a smooth transition.”

Holmes also expressed thanks to Dyson for his contributions to the business over the last four years, highlighting his “key role” in building the business and leading its finance functions through the acquisitions of LV= General Insurance and L&G General Insurance.

“I wish him well for the future,” Holmes said. “I have no doubt the expertise and experience Ulf is bringing to Allianz will aid our future success. I’d like to extend a warm welcome to him and I look forward to working together.”

Discussing his decision to leave, Treloar said it had been a “privilege” to work alongside Allianz Holding’s “talented, dedicated, and passionate team”. He added that he was immensely proud of all the business had achieved in the last seven years and that, with the integration of the L&G General Insurance business complete, the time was right to pass on the baton.

Adding his comments, Dyson said: “I am privileged to have been part of an amazing team, building this fantastic business over the last four years. It’s now time for me to move on and wish all of my friends and colleagues at Allianz the very best for the future.”
