Allianz Group’s specialist corporate insurer, Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty, said Rich Soja will become North American regional head of marine and Henning Haagen will take over as North American regional head of specialty lines.

Allianz said the appointment follows the retirement of John Barnwell after more than 20 years with the company. Allianz provides insurance for megayachts, yachts and other boats.

Soja also will continue in his current role as global head of inland marine; Haagen will continue as Northeast zone executive.
