AXA Equitable Names Four New Senior Vice Presidents

NEW YORK, Feb. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- AXA Equitable Life Insurance Company has announced that Kermitt Brooks, John Carlson, Kevin Kennedy and Patricia Louie have each been elected to the position of senior vice president. These appointments were confirmed during a Board of Directors meeting held last week.

"The enduring fabric of a company is a strong leadership team," said Mark Pearson, chairman and chief executive officer of AXA Equitable. "I could not be more pleased by our latest senior management appointments. I congratulate each individual on their respective accomplishments, and I wish them all much success in the future."

Kermitt Brooks leads the Law Department's Insurance Practice Group, responsible for legal advice and regulatory filings regarding product design, policy forms and structure, and illustrations and policyholder reports. He reports to Dave Hattem, general counsel for AXA Equitable. Prior to joining the company, Brooks served as first deputy/acting superintendent for the New York State Insurance Department; he held senior positions in the New York State Attorney General's office; and he served as counsel at MetLife and the law firm of Nixon Peabody LLP.

John Carlson joined AXA Equitable in December to head Life Distribution Management, reporting to David O'Leary, executive vice president. Carlson is responsible for defining and leading life sales strategies that support the company's growth objectives across all existing distribution channels, as well as for developing strategies for complementary distribution opportunities. He joined AXA Equitable from MassMutual Financial Group, where he held leadership roles in sales, marketing and product management.

Kevin Kennedy has returned to AXA Equitable to lead Strategic Accounts, Strategic Marketing & Advanced Markets, and Operations and Technology for AXA Distributors, the company's wholesale distribution channel. He reports to Nick Lane, senior executive vice president and president of Retirement Savings. Since 2008, Kennedy has served as chief distribution officer with AXA Global Distributors in Paris, where he built and ran its distribution organization. Kennedy has also held senior sales roles at Scudder Investments/Deutsche Asset Management and Nike Securities.

Patricia Louie manages the Law Department's Funds Management Practice Group, also reporting to Hattem. Louie provides legal advice related to the proprietary mutual funds offered as investment options in AXA Equitable's insurance products. Her responsibilities also include preparing and presenting materials to the Board of Trustees, handling regulatory filings, and overseeing compliance and diligence reviews. Louie's career also includes roles as assistant general counsel at The Dreyfus Corp., and associate counsel at the Investment Company Institute.
