Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty (AGCS) has established an aviation workers compensation department in the U.S. by entering into an agreement with the National Air Transportation Association.

AGCS will serve as the underwriter for this broker-driven program featuring competitive rates and incentives that reward companies with excellent safety records.

The new department will be led by Charles Couch, who most recently served as VP of underwriting and head of distribution for Aviation at QBE North America, focusing on organizational growth. Prior to this, he held workers comp and underwriting roles with Phoenix Aviation Managers Inc. and The St. Paul Cos.
