Solmaz ALTIN has embraced digitalization and has distinguished himself during his tenure in Turkey and as Chief Digital Officer for the Group. Over the last two years, he has laid the foundation for our Digital Agenda and the ALLIANZ SE board thanks Solmaz ALTIN for his outstanding achievements. I am delighted to welcome him to ALLIANZ Asia and I look forward to him leading Asia through the next stage of its development."

Sergio BALBINOT continues, "George has been instrumental to ALLIANZ's success in the leadership roles he has taken on, from Australia to Turkey, Italy and Asia Pacific, where he will continue to be the CEO for another year. We look forward to continuing to work together with George in his role as Chairman of the Asia Advisory Council after he retires in April 2019."
