GLOBAL VILLAGE : Duvoux succession provides italy continuity
SGSS has appointed Jeanne Duvoux as CEO and Managing Director of SGSS in Italy (SGSS S.p.A). The Board of Directors approved her appointment as successor to Massimo Cotella, who joined the SGSS Executive Committee, on 19 January 2012. The move is thought to make her the fi rst female CEO of a bank in Italy. “If that is true I am very proud, but the important issue here for clients is the continuity of strategy and service demonstrated by my appointment after several years as deputy to Massimo,” she says.
Jeanne Duvoux will actively pursue the development of SGSS’ activities in Italy, where it is already a market leader. In Global Custodian magazine’s 2011 Agent Banks in Major Markets survey, SGSS S.p.A. was Top Rated in the Cross-border/non-affi liated and Domestic categories, and Leading Top Rated in the Client category.
