Axa names Amanda Blanc's replacement


Axa has named Claudio Gienal as its new chief executive of Axa UK and Ireland.

Gienal takes over from previous CEO Amanda Blanc following her departure for Zurich in April this year.

At the time of her exit the industry said Blanc was a “big loss to Axa and unbelievable gain for Zurich”.

Bertrand Poupart-Lafarge, who has held the CEO post on an interim basis, will retain his role as Axa UK chief financial officer.

Gienal takes up his new role on 1 September and joins from Axa Group
