HDI Global SE (HDI) has announced the appointment of Oliver Davies as Distribution & Strategic Initiatives Manager for the London region. Oliver begins his role at HDI effective 16th March.
In this role, Oliver will be responsible for the development and oversight of HDI’s key account and broker relationships in London and the South, reporting to Director of Distribution Stephanie Ogden.
Oliver joins HDI from Allianz where he has spent a number of years in a variety of different roles, most recently in the post of Real Estate Manager, where he was responsible for Allianz’s distribution strategy and management within the London Market.
