Allianz Worldwide Care has appointed Ida Luka-Lognoné as new CEO to succeed Ron Buchan.
Luka-Lognoné is currently an executive committee member of Allianz Worldwide Partners, responsible for strategy, innovation and market management, and was previously CEO for Europe, Middle East and Africa within Allianz Global Assistance.
Buchan has retired, and will take up an advisory role as Chairman of the Allianz Worldwide Care Board.
Luka-Lognoné said: "Having worked in the insurance industry for almost 25 years, I understand the dynamic evolution of this sector and I find that hugely motivating and exciting.
"In just 15 years Allianz Worldwide Care has grown from a greenfield start-up to become the market leader in international health insurance, with a consistent record of robust growth and a GWP of €1.1 billion in 2014.
She added: "In 2016 and beyond, I believe that insurance products and services will increasingly be delivered and supported through mobile and digital technology, providing ever greater levels of convenience and value to our clients."
