Who is François Malan, our winner for Private Sector Risk Manager of the Year Award 2020?
Francois has been an AMRAE member for 20 years and has huge experience in managing insurance programmes for major French corporations including Hermès, Nexity and now Eiffage.

On top of all that, they must be courageous, have a free mind, be curious, optimistic and charismatic.
