What I do
I joined the company in March 2020 with a goal to helping Architas make the most of its international foundations and expand further into Europe and Asia, and take the business to the next level of scale. To fuel the growth of the next phase of development of the Architas business, in January 2023 a new business unit was created within AXA IM with the primary objective to simplify our offering for our clients and provide them with a one-stop shop for UL products and services. I lead this business unit and am a member of the AXA Investment Management Board.
Where I’ve been
I have been working for more than 25 years, and have worked in 5 countries and 3 continents; first spending six or seven years as a consultant before joining AXA Group in 1996. Prior to joining AXA, I spent most of my career as a consultant at Ernst & Young specialising in the Financial Services sector.
My experience spans 10 years in finance and 15 years in business development and has focused on asset management and life and savings even though I started in commercial lines insurance.
What I’ve learnt
I am a graduate of ESLSCA Business School in Paris, with a major in Finance. Subsequently I benefited from Executive development on Strategic Marketing at Wharton University and Digital leadership at IMD Lausanne.
The job you wanted to be as a child
I wanted to have my own restaurant. I believed then that a restaurant was the best combination of know-how and social activities, which would allow me to continue to enjoy what I have cherished at home as a kid “feeling well useful and surrounded”. The game is not over yet!
