Germany, Europe

@sabiaschwarzer

 

Sabia Schwarzer is viewed as one of the best of a new breed of German communicators, challenging a PR landscape that is often typified by a reluctance to take risks. She took on the top communications job at Allianz in 2015, filling the shoes of 23-year corporate comms head Emilio Galli Zugaro.

Her promotion came after spending two decades with the insurance giant in a variety of senior marketing and communications roles across the world, including as head of communications for North America for 14 years, including being a board member of the Allianz Foundation, and as head of comms for Asia Pacific.
