AXA Insurance Singapore has appointed Sean Goh as managing director of its life strategic business unit.
Goh succeeds Neil Frith who will be moving to a new position within the International & New Markets (INM) transformation team based out of Madrid, Spain.
During his five years at AXA, Goh 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.
Goh’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.
AXA said that a smooth transition between Goh and Frith will take place over the coming weeks.
Commenting on the appointment, AXA Insurance Singapore CEO Jean Drouffe said: “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.”
“On behalf of the Singapore team, I would like to thank Neil for his spectacular contributions,” he concluded.
