Rebecca Stewart

I am currently a Key Account Manager at Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty.

After completing my BA in Sociology in 2011, from the University of Bristol, I was always determined to build a career in the Insurance sector. However, following the completion of my degree I was lucky enough to obtain an internship in the London 2012 Olympic marketing team, which was given the rather easy job of galvanising the nation for the games. My team was specifically focused on organising all of the non-commercial projects in order to enhance the ‘spectator experience’ for the games, alongside organising events and projects around London. The games was obviously a once in a lifetime experience, and I loved working on the project before embarking on my career in the City.

My first role in the Insurance sector was working at Willis Tower Watson, where I was a Wholesale broker placed in the North American Property from January 2013 until September 2016. The role entailed placing and serving complex property business from the US into the European market in London, with a particular focus on large natural catastrophe exposed programs. Whilst I learnt a lot from this role, and built some fantastic relationships, I eventually decided my skills lied within the relationship side of the business, and so moved across to Allianz (AGCS) to focus on servicing FTSE250 companies. The key aspect of my role is to maintain and enhance AGCS’s relationships with new and existing corporate clients and brokers, produce strategic action plans that seeks to increase retention, new business, up-sells and cross-sells across AGCS and the wider Allianz Group. I have worked in this role for nearly five years and thoroughly enjoy it. I am lucky enough to work with a wide variety of fantastic clients, that include everyone from leading fashion houses to global defence giants, which makes the role exciting and interesting as no day is ever the same!
