AXA has appointed Trey Reynolds, a 30-year insurance industry veteran, as the head of life distribution for AXA in the US.
This new position will give emphasis to sales in the independent channel, which includes third-party organisations, such as broker general agents, wire houses, banks and other non-proprietary organisations.
Reynolds will report to Ron Herrmann, head of the life business for AXA.
“Trey brings a depth of experience in working with brokerage life insurance, as well as with some of the insurance industry’s strongest third-party distributors,” says Herrmann. “Such relationships are key.” Trey’s proven track record with third-party distributors has given him an important operational perspective on the industry that will allow AXA to find ways to increase the penetration of its products to a large group of consumers who are under or uninsured.”
Prior to joining AXA, Reynolds had been national sales vice president for M Financial, John Hancock’s largest account as measured by countable premium. Earlier, as president and chief operating officer of BRAMCO, Reynolds was charged with working with its 28 independently owned firms, leading the effort to establish and extend the BRAMCO brand.
Other positions included leadership positions with Ascensus and BISYS and overseeing the national account channel for the life insurance division of Crump Insurance Services.
