SocGen's Swiss Private Bank Names New Chair

Societe Generale's private bank in Switzerland has a new chair.

Societe Generale’s private bank in Switzerland has appointed Anne Marion-Bouchacourt as its new chair.

She replaces Yves Thieffry, who is retiring from the bank, part of the Paris-listed group, said yesterday. He was the chair for six years, rounding out a career at the group that covered more than 35 years.

Previously, Marion-Bouchacourt was the group chief country officer for China, a post she held from July 2012. Prior to this, she was head of group human resources, a position she held since 2006. She joined Societe Generale in 2004 as head of HR for Societe Generale Corporate & Investment Banking. She started her career as an auditor and then a consultant with PricewaterhouseCoopers.

In addition, Marion-Bouchacourt is the country manager of the group in Switzerland and the chief executive of SG Zürich, Societe Generale said in a statement.
