Delphine Maisonneuve, chief executive of AXA Brazil who has been with the Paris-headquartered insurance group for more than 27 years, will be taking on a “new important challenge” come January.
Reporting to AXA International & New Markets CEO Benoît Claveranne, Maisonneuve is replacing Guillaume Borie as group chief innovation officer and AXA Next chief executive.
