Joining the team from Banca Generali, where she’s served as the company’s General Counsel and Corporate Secretary, handling corporate governance issues and managing relations with investors, shareholders and stakeholders, Domenica Lista will become General Counsel of Europ Assistance Group. She will oversee and ensure all of Europ Assistance business activities are compliant with current regulations and will also serve as a member of the Europ Assistance Group Management Committee. She will replace Carmelo Reale as General Counsel of Europ Assistance Group and report directly to Europ Assistance CEO, Antoine Parisi.
“Domenica’s experience and her extensive legal background make her a valuable addition to our team. We are also excited to welcome Philippe back to the Europ Assistance team as our CFO after his tenure with our team in the US,” said Parisi. “I’d also like to thank Carmelo and Samir for all the hard work they’ve done for us over the past few years, being instrumental parts of our success.”
As detailed by Parisi, Philippe Gervais will be taking over the role of Group Chief Financial Officer from Samir Lahlou, who is becoming CFO of Europ Assistance SA, the primary insurance entity of the Group. Philippe comes to the position following a two-year tenure as President of the Travel Insurance Business and General Manager of Europ Assistance’s US companies, Generali Global Assistance (GGA). Prior to this, Philippe worked with Europ Assistance for 15 years, including serving as CEO of the Tele-Assistance Product Line as well as CEO of Europ Assistance Belgium.
Looking forward to his new appointment, Phillipe said: “After a great tenure with the US team, I’m excited to join the head office team in Paris as the new CFO. I am planning to leverage my longstanding experience within our organisation as local CEO and General Manager, to help our Group succeed throughout these challenging and transformative times for our industry.”
