D’Huart will take over leadership responsibilities for Everest’s French operations from Anne Charon. She joined Everest in 2022 and has been promoted to Everest’s role of Head of Client Engagement, Everest Europe.

Charon has been key to Everest’s expansion in the French market, building an industry-leading team. She has worked in the industry for over 30 years and will now oversee the development and execution of Everest’s client and growth strategies across Continental Europe.

Véronique Brionne, Head of Continental Europe, commented, “The appointments of François-Xavier and Anne reflect Everest’s commitment to world-class leadership who understand the needs of the market, with the capabilities to exceed expectations. We are expanding our value proposition, from the vital French market across Continental Europe, and delivering Everest’s bespoke offerings and exceptional service to new and existing clients.”
