SGSS makes two UK appointments

Societe Generale Securities Services (SGSS) has made two appointments to strengthen its presence in the UK.

Bertrand Blanchard becomes SGSS’ country manager in the UK. Previously managing director of Societe Generale’s Johannesburg branch and country manager for SGSS in South Africa, he will be responsible for leading SGSS’ business development strategy in the UK, where it is actively investing in its business. Based in London, he reports directly to Bruno Prigent, global head of SGSS.
 
Guillaume Lenoir has been appointed chief of strategic initiatives implementation. He joins SGSS from EuroCCP Ltd and has significant experience in strategic change programmes and projects. Reporting to Blanchard and based in London, he will be responsible for implementing SGSS’ development initiatives in the UK.
 
These appointments come in addition to Jason Nabi, head of financial institutions and brokers for the UK, and Michael Le Garignon, head of sales, business development and relationship management for the UK.
 
“Bertrand and Guillaume are joining SGSS’ team in the UK at an important time,” says Prigent. “SGSS plans to be a key partner to its clients, providing them with operational efficiencies as well as significant new business opportunities as the industry continues to evolve in response to regulatory and structural changes. These key appointments will further strengthen SGSS’ presence in the UK and its ability to accompany clients in their growth and development in this market, where SGSS already provides products and services to a client base of institutional investors, asset managers, insurance companies and alternative investment managers.”
