Insurer Cardif Pinnacle has hired former Arthur J Gallagher partnerships head Alan Sanderson as chief commercial officer.

Sanderson joined the BNP Pariibas-owned insurer on 1 December.

Sanderson left his role as the partnerships managing director for Gallagher Insurance Solutions in September and was replaced by Andy Tedstone.

Before joining Gallagher, Sanderson worked for broking group Brightside. He was also director of trading at insurer Aviva for eight years.

Cardif Pinnacle said Sanderson’s appointment is part of its overall strategic plan, which is focused on targeted growth and diversification within key markets.

The insurer described Sanderson as “a great asset to a strong and ambitious management team”.
