AXA has announced the appointment of Jef Van In as CEO of AXA Next and as the group’s chief innovation officer.
As part of his new role, he will report to Antimo Perretta, CEO of AXA Europe and a member of AXA’s management committee.
Van In will replace Delphine Maisonneuve who has decided to take on a new role outside of AXA – his role will come into effect on 1 July.
In a company update, Perretta thanked Maisonneuve “warmly” for all she has done at AXA over the past 30 years – adding that he wished her “all the best in this new chapter of her career”.
Commenting on the appointment of Van In, he said: “I am convinced that his drive, his broad experience, his track record in the transformation of our operations in Belgium, and his strong convictions around customer centricity and innovation will be instrumental in accelerating our transformation journey.
“Bringing our innovation ecosystem closer to our core markets is another key step in our ambition to accelerate and scale business-driven and impactful innovation across our operations, in particular in the area of services and customer experience.”
