“I would like to thank the board of directors of Aviva France for placing their trust in me to anchor the company to Aéma Groupe, its new parent company, and to keep it on the path to success with the support of all its employees, networks and partners. “said Labrosse, who brings three decades of experience in insurance and investment advice to the most senior position.
The president of Aviva France, meanwhile, is deputy managing director of Aéma. Dogneton is also Managing Director of Macif, the company which merged with Aésio Mutuelle last year to form Aéma. The Expanded Mutual Protection Group was launched in January 2021.
Dogneton commented: “In addition to enriching our diversity, the arrival of Aviva France within our group will strengthen our diversity and give us new responsibilities vis-à-vis policyholders, members and customers with whom we deal with everyday.
“This acquisition will strengthen the synergies of skills and expertise and mutual know-how to enrich our offers and services. We are extremely proud and happy to welcome the Aviva France teams who share our values of solidarity and commitment.
It was noted that the arrival of Aviva France places Aéma, which now has more than 11 million policyholders, in fifth place in the French insurance industry.
“We are very proud to welcome this great company as the third pillar of Aéma Groupe, alongside Macif and Aésio”, declared Pascal Michard, Chairman of Aéma. “With Aviva France, we are creating a French leader in mutuality. From now on, Aviva France, supported by its 4,500 employees, will continue to grow within our common structure.
Gradually, according to Aéma, Aviva France will be renamed.
Aviva Plc boss Amanda Blanc said: “This is a very important step forward for Aviva. This greatly simplifies the business as we focus on our core businesses in UK, Ireland and Canada. I am convinced that Aéma, with its heritage and reputation in insurance, will be an excellent owner of Aviva France. I wish the company and all its employees every success for the future.
