Allianz Re appoints new CEO

Amer Ahmed is taking over as chief executive officer of Allianz Re effective 1st January 2012, succeeding Clemens von Weichs.

The forty-four year old became a member of the reinsurer’s executive committee in 2007 when as chief risk officer, he was responsible for overall risk management including actuarial, the natural catastrophe team, and the firm’s retrocession and securitisation activities.

Mr Ahmed assumed broader responsibilities in 2010 when he was appointed president and has since been working closely with the outgoing Mr von Weichs on the strategic positioning of Allianz Re, both within the Allianz group and in the reinsurance market generally.

Allianz Re provides reinsurance solutions for Allianz subsidiaries but also writes business for third party clients in the open market.
