He will report to Mattieu Rouot and sit on our Executive Committee

Today we are pleased to announce that Paul Lewis will become our new global Head of Business Development. Paul replaces Ricardo Almeida who has joined Mercer Marsh Benefits to lead its Latin America and Caribbean employee benefits business.

In his new role, Paul will oversee our four Business Development regions. He will report to Mattieu Rouot, CEO of MAXIS GBN, and will sit on the Executive Committee.
Paul will lead a Business Development function that has gone from strength-to-strength in recent years. MAXIS has achieved double digit growth year-on-year in terms of premium volume over the last five years and now has a portfolio of well over €1 billion.
Paul Lewis, Head of Business Development at MAXIS GBN, said: “I’m delighted to be taking on this new position and really looking forward to working closely with our highly talented teams around the world to continue growing MAXIS GBN’s business globally. My ambition is to build on the success we’ve seen in all regions since the launch of the joint venture in 2016 and continue to be the easiest global benefits network to work with.
“There’s a compelling opportunity in the market as more multinationals look to global employee benefits programmes to control costs and offer more to their people – by focusing on innovation and continuing our dedicated customer service, we are well placed to capitalise on this opportunity and continue to be the network of choice for multinationals across the globe.”
Paul has over 15 years’ experience working with multinational organisations and implementing global employee benefits programmes. He joined MAXIS GBN in 2016 and, before then, was a Regional Sales Manager with MetLife Expatriate Benefits. He worked for eight years with Aetna within Underwriting and International Account Management. He obtained his Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in Risk Management and Insurance from the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business. He is a citizen of both the US and UK.
Mattieu Rouot, CEO, MAXIS GBN, said: “Our Americas team has gone from strength-to-strength under Paul’s leadership and he’s done an exceptional job working with some of the largest and most sophisticated multinational companies in the US, Latin America and Canada. With Paul’s leadership of the global Business Development team, I’m very confident that we will see even more positive results, with a strong focus on customer experience and teamwork.”
