AXA appoints a fourth former consultant to its executive committee

Like Patrick Cohen, CEO of Axa France since 2021 (here), and Georges Desvaux, director of strategy and development for three years (there), Alexander Vollert is a former consultant for McKinsey (2000-2008). It must be said that strategy consulting alumni are well represented within AXA’s executive committee. They will go from three (out of fourteen members) to four; the insurer being the second “employer” of former strategy consultants in governance, just after LVMH.

A promo commented by the first of them, an ex-BCGer, Thomas Buberl, CEO of Axa. ” I am very happy that Alexandre joins the management committee. His in-depth knowledge of insurance and technology, as well as his strong leadership skills, reflected in his exceptional career as CEO of AXA Germany, will be great assets for the group’s senior management in the future. While successfully transforming AXA GO, Alexander will play a key role in the management committee to help the group accelerate its tech, data & operations strategy, a key driver for the success of the “Driving progress 2023” strategic plan. »
