Find out more about changes to our Americas team

We’re pleased to share that Paul Lewis has been promoted to the role of Regional Director – Americas. Paul will report to Ricardo Almeida, Head of Business Development, who led the Americas team himself before stepping into his current senior role.

As well as promoting Paul, we’re also creating a new Strategic Accounts division in the Americas region, which Paul will oversee, to manage and build further on the extensive, high-calibre client base we have in the region.

Paul Lewis, Regional Director – Americas at MAXIS GBN said: “I’m delighted to be given the opportunity to further grow MAXIS GBN’s presence in the Americas region. It’s one of the most competitive markets, home to some of the world’s largest multinationals and has a highly sophisticated employee benefits sector. Our ambition is to build on our momentum in the region by focusing on innovation while continuing to offer the best solutions and service to multinationals with our experienced, dedicated team.”

Paul has over 15 years’ experience working with multinational organisations and implementing global employee benefits programmes. He joined MAXIS GBN in 2016 and most recently headed up our US East Region’s Business Development team.

Prior to joining MAXIS GBN, Paul was a Regional Sales Manager with MetLife Expatriate Benefits and had worked for eight years with Aetna within Underwriting and International Account Management. He obtained his 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.

In addition to Paul’s promotion, Paul Miehlke has become the Director of our newly formed Americas Strategic Accounts division. Christinea Chase is also expanding her role as a Senior Client Relationship Manager for the East of the US, while Diana Daszewski is being promoted to Senior Account Manager. Paul Miehlke, Christinea and Diana will all report to Paul Lewis.

Ricardo Almeida, Head of Business Development at MAXIS GBN said: “Our Americas team has gone from strength to strength in the last few years and does an exceptional job working with some of the largest and most sophisticated multinational companies in the US, Latin America and Canada. With Paul Lewis’ leadership, we’re very confident that we will see even more positive results, with a strong focus on customer experience and teamwork. We’ll be able to continue the growth in the region and cement both MAXIS GBN’s and our network members’ positions as market leaders.”
