  • Leandra Lo Faro


    After finishing my economics studies, I completed the 18-month Career Start Program at AXA. In addition to various training courses and a 3-week placement in a different department, the highlight for me was going abroad to work for AXA International and New Markets in Madrid. I have been a Strategic Assistant for the Head of Distribution at AXA Switzerland since completing the Career Start Program. I learn something new in this role every day and am involved when new solutions are developed, implemented and put into practice.

    I plan tomorrow’s IT landscape in the IT architecture team. I have been at AXA since October 2018, having previously studied Business Information Technology at the University of Zurich. I am taking part in the 18-month Career Start Program in parallel to my job as an IT architect.

Cross Company Program success stories

Are you interested in the experience of our alumni in the Cross Company Program ? Andrea and Janine describe their experiences with the program.

    The Customer and User Experience area has long fascinated me. By taking part in the Cross Company Program at AXA and Zühlke, I found the perfect way to start professional life after studying at the University of St. Gallen (HSG). I got to know the area from the perspective of an international insurance group and of an innovation consulting company. I had many touchpoints with the very exciting corporate business at AXA. That subsequently made things easier for me when I started work as a Customer Journey Designer.
