AXA XL has appointed Vanessa Karvela as head of client management and business development in Europe and Asia-Pacific (APAC), to focus on client experience in close collaboration with country leaders.
Bruno Laval, chief distribution officer for APAC and Europe, and regional manager of European growth markets at AXA XL, said the company is committed to ensuring client experience is consistent wherever it operates.
He said Ms Karvela’s international background, business acumen and in-depth knowledge of AXA XL makes her ideally positioned to deliver on that commitment, while leveraging the firm’s global capabilities for the benefit of clients.
Ms Karvela joined AXA Group as a senior strategy manager in 2015. She moved to AXA XL in 2018, first as chief of staff within the client and country management team and later as chief of staff for Doina Palici-Chehab, who is senior adviser to the CEO.
