On July 10, 2012, VIP guests gathered at the Kempinski Baltschug Hotel in Moscow, Russia to celebrate the launch of the AGCS Desk Russia.
A mix of clients, brokers, government officials and Allianz staff members were joined by Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty CEO Axel Theis, Board Members Andreas Berger and Art Moossmann, and AGCS CEO Nordic Region Stig Jensen.
Country Manager Willy Schaugg opened with a warm introduction to all guests who came to take part in the occasion. Theis then followed up with a short speech about the opportunities that lie ahead in the Russian market and the significance of launching the AGCS Desk to work closely with local clients and brokers.
As guests enjoyed the evening reception, many would take advantage of the opportunity to engage with global management on forthcoming market strategies and expertise as a leading industrial insurer.
Schaugg commented, “The kick-off was an outstanding opportunity for all of our key distribution partners to meet face-to-face with the AGCS Board Members and the local team to get a first hand understanding of the AGCS strategy and its competitive advantages. It clearly supported our ambition and strengthened our image of Allianz being a leading specialized insurance carrier and innovator on the insurance market of Russia and FSU countries.”
