Gaëlle Olivier replaces Hikaru Ogata who decided to pursue new projects outside the Bank. This appointment will be effective starting 2 January 2020 and is subject to the approval of regulatory authorities.
Based in Hong Kong, Gaëlle Olivier will report to Séverin Cabannes, Deputy Chief Executive Officer for Societe Generale, and will become a member of the Group’s Management Committee.
I would like to thank Hikaru Ogata for his long-term commitment towards Societe Generale and for his contribution to the significant development of our activities in Asia Pacific. Hikaru has strongly contributed to the strengthening of our regional platform and to the expansion of our client franchise in the countries where the Group operates.
Gaëlle Olivier's experience, including the beginning of her career in market activities as well as her various senior executive positions at AXA in Paris and in Asia-Pacific, where she spent ten years of her career, will be key assets in strengthening our strategic positioning and pursuing our growth strategy in the region.
