Allianz Partners has appointed Diane Babson to the role of Chief Financial Officer for Allianz Care (the company’s international health brand).
Diane is succeeding Finance Director and Deputy Chief Executive Officer Frank Mee, who has retired after more than 30 years of service. She began the new role last month on a three-year assignment.
Diane joined Allianz Partners in 2015 as Chief Financial Officer for the US and Americas. She has more than 15 years’ experience across multiple financial disciplines and a degree in accounting from the University of Massachusetts and an MBA from the University of North Carolina-Wilmington.
“Diane is a seasoned finance executive with vast experience, and we are delighted she is joining us following a number of very successful years leading the finance operations for the US and Americas. Diane is a strong leader and strategic business partner, and I am very much looking forward to working with her at Allianz Care,” said CEO Ida Luka-Lognoné.
Luka-Lognoné also commented on Frank’s retirement: “It has been a privilege for me to work alongside Frank since I joined the company. His dedication to the business and wealth of knowledge has always been an enormous asset to the team. I wish him a happy and fulfilling retirement.”
