Societe Generale has announced the appointments of Sylvain Cartier and Alexandre Fleury as co-heads of global markets activities as of 22 June 2021. They also become members of the Group’s management committee and replace Jean-François Grégoire who will, the bank says, “pursue new projects outside the Group”.
Cartier was named head of SocGen’s FICC business in Q3 2019, prior to which he was head of global markets for the Americas – he has also run the bank’s FICC business in Asia-Pacific, having joined the bank in 1993 as a bond trader.
Fleury, meanwhile was appointed head of equities and equity derivatives in June 2018, having joined the bank in that position from Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
Both will retain their existing roles in addition to the global markets responsibilities, they will report to Slawomir Krupa, head of global banking and investor solutions.
“In the context of the implementation of our new strategic roadmap in global banking and investor solutions, this new management structure of the market division, tighter and under my direct supervision, will allow to strengthen day-to-day cooperation, alignment and agility within global markets, which is essential for the proper execution of our strategic initiatives and the added value we provide to clients,” say Krupa. “Sylvain Cartier and Alexandre Fleury are uniquely qualified to carry out these initiatives, with their long experience in market businesses and their expertise, both complementary and global.
“On behalf of the general management, I would like to thank Jean-François Grégoire for his contribution to the development of our markets activities around the world these past few years and, more recently, for overseeing the successful repositioning of the product range after the impacts of the crisis in 2020,” he adds.
