Brussels-headquartered Ageas has tapped its chief risk officer (CRO), Filip Coremans, to become the company’s first chief development officer (CDO).
Effective June 01, the appointment will also see the creation of a dedicated development office. This is in line with the insurance group’s strategy which was unveiled last year.
“Since announcing Connect21 – Ageas’s new three-year strategic plan – in September 2018, considerable thought has been given to the best way for Ageas to support delivery of the Connect21 strategic choices,” stated the firm.
“Those choices include delivering a great customer experience together with our partners and through alliances, providing insurance protection and services beyond insurance to assist customers to prepare for the future, protecting them and preventing events from happening by leveraging technology and creating smart synergies.”
Meanwhile group risk officer Emmanuel Van Grimbergen has been chosen to succeed Coremans when the latter makes the switch to his new CDO role. In addition, Van Grimbergen will join the Ageas executive committee when he becomes CRO.
