Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty (AGCS) is launching a dedicated transportation and logistics unit in North America.

Helen Leonard will lead the unit, assuming the title of Inland Marine Global Products leader. The new division will offer rail, motor truck cargo, warehouse and related property coverage options. ACGS is Allianz Group’s specialist corporate insurer.

Plans call for building the division on Allianz’s current transportation claims division and specialty logistics package (covering contingent cargo, warehouse legal liability and other specialty transportation and motor truck cargo needs). To do so, this department will be expanded by a team of newly hired professionals located throughout the region, all of which will become part of the Inland Marine division. The AGCS Inland Marine group services clients range from local haulers and warehouse operations to logistics firms and large international carriers.

In a related move, Samuel (Sam) Rizzitelli joins AGCS as transportation product lead. Rizzitelli was previously VP/director of Inland Marine transportation for The Travelers Companies, Inc. Prior to this, he held several senior positions with The Hartford, Property and Casualty based in Connecticut.
