MAXIS Global Benefits Network, the international employee benefits network, has expanded its Member Management team to cater for the continued growth of its network of local insurers (Members). Trudie Roberts and Greg Tew have both been promoted within MAXIS GBN to the position of Member Manager for the Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) region. The appointments mean the firm now has five dedicated professionals focused on serving Members and supporting the growth and development of its network.
Trudie joined MAXIS GBN in October 2016 and, prior to her promotion, held the position of Multinational Account Manager. She has spent almost 10 years in the financial services industry, with roles in relationship management and sales in the pensions, insurance and employee benefits sectors for firms such as Friends Life and MetLife. Before joining MAXIS GBN, Trudie was an Internal Business Consultant for MetLife, working in its UK wealth management sales team.
Greg moved to MAXIS GBN in 2018 as a Reinsurance & Reporting Analyst. He gained his extensive reinsurance experience from roles held previously at Munich Re and SCOR, mainly covering the life and pensions market. He most recently worked as a Business Analyst at Pacific Life Re, assisting with the development and transition of business-as-usual processes following the implementation of a global operational system.
As Member Managers, Trudie and Greg’s main priorities include taking responsibility for, and managing, a portfolio of Members in the EMEA region. They represent local insurers and their needs across MAXIS GBN projects and initiatives, deliver ongoing local insurer training and education, maintain MAXIS GBN Member relationships and encourage open and regular communication.
MAXIS GBN now has almost 140 member insurer firms globally, with around 90 of these based in the EMEA region, with the firm expecting to increase its regional footprint significantly. MAXIS GBN was the first international employee benefits network to offer a dedicated network management team and has continued to invest in building its team to ensure its local insurance partners benefit from being a part of the MAXIS GBN network and multinational clients are given the best service locally.
Matthew Richards, Director of Member Management, MAXIS Global Benefits Network, said: “We are delighted to be able to expand our team and to welcome two very high-calibre individuals to Member Management. Working with, and supporting, our insurance partners is fundamental to the business model and success of MAXIS GBN, and we believe our dedicated approach, coupled with our in-depth reporting solutions and unparalleled data analytics, differentiates us significantly in the employee benefits marketplace.”
