Allianz Australia has announced the appointment of Wolfgang Deichl as Chief Financial Officer, effective 15 November.
Deichl joins the business from Allianz Germany where he has been Chief Accountant and Chief Actuary since 2016. In this role, Deichl was responsible for the financial reporting of more than 200 legal entities that make up the Allianz German Group, as well as the Reserving and Actuarial functions for the Life, Health and Property & Casualty insurance carriers within the group.
Deichl has held a number of CFO and Chief Risk Officer positions within Allianz Group since 2008, including the role of Regional CFO for Central and Eastern Europe, along with serving as a director for the group.
“It is an exciting time to be joining Allianz Australia, and I am pleased to welcome Wolfgang Deichl to the role of Chief Financial Officer,” said Richard Feledy, Managing Director of Allianz Australia.
“Wolfgang brings to Allianz Australia his extensive experience in senior financial and risk advisory roles at Allianz Group, which will help in strengthening and growing local operations, allowing the broader team to deliver on our strategic objectives of offering customer-centric simplified products and services. This appointment reinforces Allianz’s presence and importance in the Australian market. We are fortunate to have Wolfgang join our team.”
Paul Harvey, who has been acting in the role of CFO since May 2021 when Mark Raumer left Allianz Australia, will return to his previous role of Financial Controller.
