“Given Kevin’s experience in IR, his 17 years with AXA and his success in leading RPS since 2013, I am delighted that he has accepted the challenge of establishing the IR function and launching a profile for AXA US,” said Mark Pearson, chairman and chief executive officer, AXA US.

“At the same time, I want to welcome Steve, who will now oversee RPS, which comprises our 403(b), 401(k) and the 457 retirement businesses,” he said. “He brings to AXA more than 20 years of experience in financial services and success in positioning products and services though all distribution channels, varying market cycles and economic conditions.”

Molloy will report to AXA US Chief Financial Officer Anders Malmstrom and work closely with Pearson and the company’s Executive Committee. Scanlon will report to Brian Winikoff, senior executive vice president and Head of US Life, Retirement and Wealth Management for AXA US.

Previously, Scanlon was co-founder of GuardVest, a Dallas-based financial technology startup. Earlier, he was a senior vice president and managing director for Bernstein Global Wealth Management. Scanlon is a veteran of the executive ranks of AB, (formerly AllianceBernstein), an asset management company and one of the holdings of AXA Financial, Inc.
