Geneva-based wealth and asset manager Bank Lombard Odier has promoted Edouard de Saint Pierre to lead its office in France.
He succeeds Joëlle Pacteau, who is moving to an unspecified new role within the group.
De Saint Pierre joined Lombard Odier in 2018 following a 12-year career at UBS and JP Morgan. He has subsequently held various strategic positions within the chief operating officer office of Lombard Odier’s private client business.
In France, he will focus on accelerating growth in the client base, with particular emphasis on technology and digital entrepreneurs, international families and millennials.
Frédéric Rochat, managing partner of the Lombard Odier Group and co-head of the private client division, commented: “Our growth in France over the past 20 years reflects our long-term commitment to this strategic market.
“We are confident that Edouard’s knowledge of the private banking sector and his expertise in meeting client needs, particularly among the new generation, will boost growth in a market where there are many entrepreneurial ‘pearls’ to be acquired, particularly in the technology and innovation spheres.”
