Management Board

The members of Aegon’s Management Board work alongside the Executive Board, and help oversee operational issues and the implementation of Aegon’s strategy.

Members are drawn from Aegon's business and country units, and have both regional and global responsibilities. This ensures that Aegon is managed as an integrated international business. While the Executive Board remains Aegon's sole statutory executive body, the Management Board provides vital support and expertise in pursuit of the company's strategic objectives.
