David Allen

  David has over 3 decades’ experience in general insurance.  He started with Commercial Union and remained with CGU, CGNU and then Aviva, working in both personal and commercial lines, in sales, marketing, product development and underwriting roles.

David joined Direct Line Group as Travel Underwriting Manager the Monday after Eyjafjallajökull erupted in 2010, which gave the world of travel insurance the dual conundrum of whether the event was covered (and for what) and how to pronounce it. 

 David now works in Underwriting Strategy, looking to the future of all DLG’s personal lines products, as well as chairing the ABI Travel Committee.
