Partner, Head of FinTech, Egon Zehnder
Category: Professional & Financial Services
Axelle raises awareness of the importance of the FinTech Tech-enabled industry and its impact on the broader FS space, guiding colleagues and board members to approach this not just as a buzzword, but as a distinct opportunity to adopt new business models and view innovation/disruption as an opportunity.
Ensuring adequate diversity representation on shortlists for every mandate remains an important consideration for Axelle. She is focusing on bringing FinTech diversity on boards (including several appointments to prominent boards in the UK) and coaching female FinTech talent to support their leadership journey. Axelle brings diversity of geographic, business and cultural experiences, and speaks a number of languages. She also supports social welfare and education charities, encouraging women going into technology.
