Allianz Global Investors strengthens its Italian team with the hire of Michele Scolletta (pictured) as head of Allianz Networks Sales Italy.
The hire is part of the company’s plans to boost its relationships with distributing partners in Italy, particularly those within the insurance arm Allianz S.p.A. and the multi-channel bank Allianz Bank Financial Advisors.
Scolletta will report directly to Alberto D’Avenia, Italy country head and head of Business Development Southern Europe and will be the head of the group’s asset management team.
Prior to joining Allianz GI, Scolletta worked at Carmignac Gestion as Business Development director. He previously worked for Eurizon Capital SGR as head of retail and private extra captive clients and for Aureo Gestioni as head of Sales.
Alberto D’Avenia welcomed Scolletta by saying that his expertise in the industry will significantly help Allianz GI strengthen its presence in Italy. Scolletta’s hire follows that of Filippo Battistini, Andrea Remartini and Federico Domenichini in 2014.
