Olivier Jaillon

Chief Executive and Enablement Officer, Wakam

Olivier is the Chief Executive and Enablement Officer of Wakam.

He is a true high-tech serial entrepreneur: in 1998 he created his own B2B insurance brokerage company, Protegys Group, and the following year launched Assurdiscount.com, the first online B2C insurance website in France. In 2000, he bought La Parisienne Assurances, an insurer established in 1829.

Thanks to his various entrepreneurial experiences, Olivier completely rethought the strategy of his Protegys group in 1995, withdrawing from the brokerage business, and refocusing La Parisienne on innovative insurance products design. In less than 4 years he transformed La Parisienne into Europe’s leading digital insurer, with a CAGR of 37,2% for the last five years, continued profitable growth and a turnover that has since multiplied by 4 to reach €382 million in 2019. La Parisienne was rebranded Wakam on September 2020.

Olivier graduated from EM Lyon Business School and has a master’s degree from SDA Bocconi in International Economics and Management.
