Former UK CEO is leaving the insurer following global “simplification” of its operating model.
The former UK group CEO of Axa, Paul Evans is to leave the business following a global reorganisation of its operating model.
Evans, currently CEO of Axa Global Life, Savings & Health, has been with the business since 2001.
He moved to that role in 2016 after Amanda Blanc became UK group CEO.
Axa CEO Thomas Buberl commented: “Since he joined Axa in 2001, Paul has been instrumental to the successful repositioning of the group’s operations in the UK, and more recently at the helm of our life, saving and health businesses.
“I know Paul will keep many friends here, who will be sad to see him go as he pursues new challenges outside of Axa, but who will join me in wishing him the very best for the future.”
The operational changes will see the Axa Group organised based on five geographies (France, Europe, the US, Asia, and International).
It will also see a single, refocused corporate centre, reduced from the three layers - head office, global business lines, and regions - that exist today.
According to Axa the changes will not impact on the UK.
