Mondial Assistance changes its name
- January 31, 2012
Henrico County-based Mondial Assistance USA, a major travel insurance company, has been renamed Allianz Global Assistance as part of a global brand transition expected to be completed later this year.
For the past decade, Allianz Global Assistance has been part of Munich, Germany-based Allianz SE, the 20th largest company in the world, according to Forbes magazine.
Since 2000, its Richmond-based operations have grown from 213 to 900 employees, and it expects to add another 100 this year.
Last year, Mondial announced that it was consolidating its three area offices in Deep Run One, a five-story office building in Deep Run Office Park in Henrico County that
was formerly the headquarters for Circuit City Stores.
The company’s Access America travel insurance products will be renamed Allianz Travel Insurance.
In the U.S., Allianz Global Assistance insures 13 million people, mostly with its travel insurance and event ticket protection plans.
