Today, AZPNB Life has the largest bancassurance partnership in the market and has received industry awards and recognition for strong performance, leadership, and employee engagement.

We are pleased to welcome Joe Gross back to Asia as the President and CEO of AZPNB Life. Currently the Head of Global Executive Strategy and Development in Allianz SE, he has contributed tremendously to driving the vision and strategy to strengthen the personal and professional growth of the Allianz Global Executive (AGE) population and talents.

Before this, he was the Global Head of Market Management and has been instrumental in building the Allianz brand and spearheading the Group’s customer-centricity agenda.

We thank David for his leadership and contribution to Allianz and wish him the very best in his future undertakings. In the interim, Bianto Surodjo, currently Business Director and a member of the Board of Directors of AZ Life Indonesia, will take the lead of AZ Life Indonesia until Alex’s appointment is effective.

Please join us in wishing Alex and Joe every success in their new roles.
