Thierry KEPEDEN, AXA’s Head and Insurance Advocate

(Business in Cameroon) - Leading Axa Cameroon for over a decade, Thierry Kepeden, who started at Groupama in France, was appointed head of the Association of Insurers of Cameroon (Asac) in 2021. He aims to increase insurance penetration in Cameroon, currently around 3% according to official figures, during his Asac tenure. With a Master's in Business Law from Paris X University, an insurance specialization from Paris Panthéon Sorbonne University, and a diploma from the Institute of Insurance in Paris, this Cameroonian returned to his country in 1993 to join the local branch of Union des Assureurs de Paris (UAP), now Axa Cameroon. Since then, he's climbed the ranks to the top of Cameroon’s insurance sector.
