"[Kunzmann] is in a clear position to accelerate the momentum that we have achieved at Allianz Partners in delivering excellence and simplicity at scale for the benefit of our customers and I wish him the very best of luck in his new position."
- Sirma Boshnakova, Allianz SE board member

Tomas Kunzmann first joined Allianz Group in 2009, and has since held several senior positions in both the Allianz Private Krankenversicherung (APKV) and Allianz’s German sales organisation (ABV).

In 2019, Kunzmann moved to Allianz SE to take on the role of executive assistant to Oliver Bäte (chief executive) and later the role of interim head of the chief executive office. The following year, Kunzmann transferred to the mobility & assistance line of business for Allianz Partners and become a chief executive and board member.

Kunzmann will now take over from Sirma Boshnakova, who was appointed board member of Allianz SE earlier this year. Effective September 1, 2022, Laurent Floquet will succeed Kunzmann as chief executive of mobility & assistance and board member of Allianz Partners.

Floquet joined Allianz Group in 2014 as head of business development for Allianz Technology before moving to Allianz Partners in 2016 where he has since held several key roles.

Commenting on the appointments, Sirma Boshnakova, Allianz SE board member, has said:

“I am happy that Tomas is taking on the CEO role at Allianz Partners. Given his experience at Allianz Partners, he’ll bring business continuity, hands-on market knowledge, and a strong track record of collaboration and implementation to the role.”

While discussing his appointment, Kunzmann noted that the focus of Allianz Partners will remain on boosting growth, by strengthening its core activities and building new business models and ecosystem platforms.

Commenting on Floquet’s appointment, Kunzmann added:

“Laurent is an experienced leader who combines an excellent track record of driving business growth in the assistance business, with strong change and transformation skills.

“He has been instrumental in supercharging our transformation over the last number of months and I know that he is the right leader to boost our mobility & assistance business and seize the right opportunities for the future.”
