AXA Insurance Singapore has announced a key appointment in its executive committee as part of the company’s focus to streamline and further align the organisation to its strategy.
On 1 May 2018, Mr Sean Goh has been appointed Managing Director of the Life Strategic Business Unit. He takes over from Mr Neil Frith who will be moving to a new role within the International & New Markets (INM) Transformation Team based out of Madrid, Spain. Neil played a significant role supporting the growth of the life business, and under his leadership, AXA grew to be the second largest insurer in Investment Linked Policies and experienced the highest growth of assets under management in the market in 2017. A smooth transition between Sean and Neil will take place over the coming weeks.
With more than 15 years in the insurance industry, Sean has a wealth of experience and knowledge in this trade and its evolving business needs. In his five years at AXA, Sean worked in Indonesia before relocating back to Singapore in 2015 to lead Partnership Distribution. During this time, he has focused on growing AXA’s exclusive postassurance partnership with Singapore Post, expanding AXA’s portfolio of partners across various industries, and driving the strategy for the company’s entry into the very niche High Net Worth customer segment.
Sean’s previous portfolio will be reorganised among the existing Executive Committee, and he will continue to manage the High Net Worth and Direct Life portfolios.
“Sean’s appointment and the reorganisation of portfolios among the members of the Executive Committee come at an opportune time for AXA Insurance as we evolve the way we operate to continue our growth journey in Singapore. I am confident that the changes will position us to better serve our customers and community and partner with our distributors,” said Mr Jean Drouffe, Chief Executive Officer, AXA Insurance Singapore. “On behalf of the Singapore Team, I would like to thank Neil for his spectacular contributions.”
