The geographic expansion will see the addition of an Auckland-based operation manned by Allianz NZ marine manager Darren Pattle and two well-known NZ marine specialists, Henry Wallace and Korey Pese, to its offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, and Adelaide.
The new AM&T operation will provide Kiwi brokers with cargo, carriers, commercial hull, and marine liability solutions.
“I am delighted that Henry, Korey, and Darren have joined our AM&T team,” said AM&T CEO Stephen Ford. “As highly respected figures in the NZ marine market, I am confident that they will be able to deliver a value and service proposition that will differentiate us from our competitors.”
