Ten years ago, he came to Van Dessel as an account manager in Life & Benefits. After a few years, he received a promotion to department manager, where Paul sets the group’s strategic and operational plans in addition to commercial work.

He enjoys listening to his clients’ ideas and helping them reach their business objectives. Paul tries to find the best solutions for his clients’ employee benefit needs with his colleagues. This involves tailor-made risk coverages and newly designed reward programs, always taking into account the client’s financial and legal limits. He prides himself on having very tight relationships with his clients’ management teams, who see Paul as an essential business advisor.
