Lifestyle Article - Jon Dye named new Chair of ABI


Jon Dye, Chief Executive, Allianz Insurance, has been named as the new Chair of the Association of British Insurers (ABI). He will serve a one-year term after which the board chair role will revert to a two-year tenure. Jon has been on the ABI Board since January 2015, chairing the ABI Audit Committee between 2016-2018. His appointment follows the resignation of Amanda Blanc last week.

 Jon Dye said: “I am delighted to be taking on this role at such a crucial time for our world-leading industry. Insurance and long-term savings play a vital role in the UK economy and in the lives of the people we help and support. We face a period of unprecedented challenge and opportunity so it’s important for the industry to speak with a clear, authoritative and constructive voice. Amanda Blanc is a tough act to follow, but I am looking forward to working with the ABI Board on the many and varied issues that face the industry.”

 Bronek Masojada, a member of the ABI Board Appointments Committee, commented: “Jon was the clear choice of the Board to lead it over the important year ahead. He is highly respected by his Board colleagues for his commitment, judgement and open way of working.”

 Huw Evans, ABI’s Director General, said: “Jon brings 30 years’ experience of the insurance industry to the role of ABI Chair. His insights and energy will be invaluable in representing all parts of the insurance and long-term savings market as we rise to the challenges and opportunities of our fast-changing world.”

 Jon Dye is Chief Executive of Allianz Insurance plc. He was appointed to this position in July 2013. The company is focused on the provision of property and casualty insurance to commercial and personal customers in Great Britain and is the UK insurance arm of Allianz SE, the global financial services provider and the world’s largest general insurer. Jon is also a Non-Executive Director of LV General Insurance Group, following the Joint Venture announced in 2017.

 Prior to this, Jon was General Manager, Retail, responsible for trading activities for all personal lines products through broker, corporate partner and direct channels. He was appointed to this position in November 2007. Previously he was Director Claims for Allianz Insurance plc, having joined the company in that position in June 2003.

 Jon worked at Chubb Insurance Company of Europe SA from 1998 to 2003 in a variety of Claims roles. Prior to that, he spent nine years at Commercial Union, having joined that organisation as a Management Trainee in 1989. He is a law graduate of Cambridge University and a Fellow of the Chartered Insurance Institute.
