SGSS establishes a new client focused governing body.

Societe Generale Securities Services (SGSS) establishes a new client focused governing body, to continue to accompany institutional investors who need services that are increasingly more extensive, multi-product and multi-country.

Headed by Bruno Prigent, the Global Head of Societe Generale Securities Services, the new executive committee, composed of 6 members, is responsible for the strategy and development of SGSS.

As of November 24th, in addition to their current positions, the members of the executive committee oversee specific activities which are divided into 4 areas:


  • Massimo Cotella, CEO of SGSS Italy, supervises sales and marketing activities, as well as SGSS' Liquidity Management services (securities lending, treasury, foreign exchange). His objective is notably to develop new client solutions by leveraging the expertise of the SGSS teams in cash and securities liquidity management, as well as foreign exchange.


  • Pascal Berichel, former Head of Fund Distribution Services, supervises the overall Fund Services.
  • Didier Rolland, previously Global Head of Client and Business Support within the Corporate and Investment Bank's Operations Department, supervises clearing, custody services and issuer services of SGSS.

Pascal Berichel and Didier Rolland are responsible for reinforcing transversal management and synergies among the SGSS operational activities and ensuring quality multi-products in multiple countries in an ever moving context.


  • Jean Cadroy, currently Head of Information Technology, also supervises all the subjects related to the transformation of the business in an evolving regulatory context in order to reinforce SGSS' growth dynamics.


  • Jean-Claude Martinez, currently Chief Administrative Officer, supervises SGSS' support functions, as well as S2E, Societe Generale's joint venture for employee savings plans.

Today, SGSS is present in 28 locations worldwide with over 4,000 employees. It offers a full range of services that are tailored to financial market trends and regulations. Its business development strategy combines both organic growth, developing, in particular, synergies with Societe Generale group entities, and partnerships through joint ventures and commercial alliances. Through this new governing body, SGSS aims to continue its development in the securities industry and consolidate its position as one of the top 3 securities services providers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
