AXA UK and Ireland has announced changes to its Management Committee portfolios following the recent appointment of Shali Vasudeva as Chief Operating Officer.
Shali’s COO responsibilities will be focused on delivering more robust operational stability across the business and working with the Operating Companies to remove complexity for customers and members. Therefore, effective from 1 March 2019, Shali will be responsible for a number of business areas including IT, Customer Insight, Digital, Procurement and Property. This includes leading the Transformation Office and the Simplification Programme as previously announced.
