2 July 2024

Benjamin Verlingue takes over as CEO and launches the strategy for the next four years

The Adelaïde Group, which includes Verlingue, is opening a new chapter. Benjamin Verlingue has been appointed as the Group’s new Chief Executive Officer, taking over from his father, Jacques Verlingue. With this change of leadership, the helm of the Group has now been handed over to the fourth generation of the founding family. At the same time, the new strategy is launched.

The Group has been growing and reinventing itself for more than 90 years. With the new leadership, the Group also presents its ambitious strategic plan “Better Future 28”. The aim is to double the Group’s turnover by 2028 to 800 million euros and to establish itself as the leading family-owned insurance broker in Europe. The strategic plan also focuses on non-financial performance, integrating environmental, social and governance issues at all levels of the company. It focuses on four main areas:

  • Organic and external growth
  • Developing human capital
  • Technological innovation
  • Positive impact on society and the environment

For Verlingue, this means a turnover target of 450 million euros by 2028 and the employment of 400 new employees in France and Europe.

These developments underline the Adelaïde Group’s ongoing commitment to growth, innovation and excellence in insurance brokerage.
