  • 19.05.2021

As announced at the time of the publication of its 2020 annual results, BNP Paribas has decided to adapt its organisation and adjust its management team, while continuing to increase the representation of women on its governing bodies. These measures took effect the day after the Group’s Annual General Meeting on 19 May 2021.

An organisation to address several key priorities

To meet new human, technological and business challenges at a time when the expectations of clients, investors, employees and society are evolving at a faster pace, the Group has adjusted its organisation and management team. These changes will make it possible to address several key priorities, and in line with the future BNP Paribas 2022-2025 strategic plan:

  • Maximising synergies and efficiency among all retail businesses;
  • Accelerating our development in the areas of savings and investment;
  • Boosting the growth momentum of the corporate and institutional client business;
  • Continuing to strengthen our industrial set-up.

An organisation centred on clients

Relying on an organisation centred on clients, the Group has adjusted the scope of its operational divisions and the composition of its Executive Committee. These changes are reflected in the following measures:

  • Thierry Laborde has been appointed Chief Operating Officer and is responsible for a new Retail Banking division which brings together the Group’s retail business lines: Domestic Markets, International Retail Banking and BNP Paribas Personal Finance;
  • Yann Gérardin has been appointed Chief Operating Officer and remains in charge of the CIB division;
  • Renaud Dumora has been appointed Deputy Chief Operating Officer and is in charge of a new Investment & Protection Services division which includes BNP Paribas Cardif, BNP Paribas Asset Management, BNP Paribas Wealth Management and BNP Paribas Real Estate;
  • Laurent David has been appointed Deputy Chief Operating Officer, in charge of the operational efficiency of all the Group’s processes and will oversee information systems, facilities management, procurement and internal consulting.
