AXA has announced some changes to its board of directors following its annual shareholders’ meeting held on Tuesday.

Key outcomes from the meeting include the renewal of Antoine Gosset-Grainville’s mandate as a director for another four-year term.

Following this renewal, Gosset-Grainville was reappointed as chairman of the board for the duration of his new term.

Clotilde Delbos and Isabel Hudson were similarly renewed as directors for four years. Angelien Kemna and Marie-France Tschudin also had their directorships extended, each for a term of three years.

Additionally, Helen Browne was appointed as director upon the proposal of AXA Group’s employee shareholders. She is set to join the board for a four-year term.

With these changes, the composition of the AXA board now stands at 15 members, with nine women and six men. Nine of the board’s members are classified as independent under the criteria set by the Afep-Medef Code.
