Closed on July 6, the first recruitment campaign for a new director of the Insurance Commission has gone unheeded. The “gendarme of insurers” launched a second call for applications on Saturday, which runs until August 7.

Is this a profile so sharp that it has become excessively rare on the job market? Or is the covid-19 crisis a spoiler? Still, the Insurance Commission (CAA) remains to this day in search of a new future director. When contacted, the organization could not provide us with further clarification on this recruitment procedure supervised by the Ministry of Finance.

Indeed, the announcement made at the end of June of the retirement of Claude Wirion, the current chairman of the Board of Directors, was followed by a first call for candidates supposed to close on July 6. However, the “gendarme of the insurers” publishes in the Saturday edition of Luxemburger Wort (p. 43) a new job offer for the position of manager. This time, the application files must be sent until August 7 at the latest.


Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Insurance Commission since 2015, Claude Wirion, 65, is preparing to retire. Candidates for his succession can appear until July 6.


Claude Wirion’s successor must have “at least 15 years of experience in the financial sector, including five at a managerial level”. He will also have to display “a perfect command of English”, specifies the CAA in its announcement. The desired profile must also “have interpersonal skills”, in addition to “have the sense of public relations to represent the CAA (…) towards public authorities, professional and consumer associations as well as (…) in the various European and international organizations of which it is a member ”.

As a reminder, Claude Wirion, 65 years old, asserted his retirement rights. His mandate comes to an end at the end of 2020, after three decades spent in the Insurance Commission. First, a member of the management, responsible for supervising Luxembourg life insurance and pension funds, Wirion succeeded Vic Rod as director in 2015.

The CAA acts as the “gendarme” of the insurance sector in Luxembourg, which represents around 300 insurance and reinsurance companies, and more than 8,000 employees.
