Allianz Benelux SA said Dec. 19 that CEO Wilfried Neven left the company, effective immediately.
He was replaced by Kathleen Van den Eynde, who will take on the role alongside her responsibilities for the technical life, health and investment area.
A strike had been planned by a works council due to an ongoing conflict within the company, but was canceled following Neven's departure, EN24 News reported. Neven had previously announced 75 job losses over the course of three years, even as staff brought up complaints regarding client services and staff exhaustion.
Eynde will temporarily hire eight employees to support struggling services. A provision of around €12 million for the announced layoffs has been created.
