Olivier Lecler appointed CEO of Societe Generale Private Banking in Switzerland


Olivier Lecler (pictured) has been appointed CEO of Société Générale Private Banking (Suisse) SA (SGPBS) with immediate effect. He succeeds Yves Thieffry.

Previously Deputy CEO of the company, Lecler will chair the SGPBS Executive Committee and become a member of the Executive Committee of Societe Generale Private Banking (SGPB). Pursuing the development of the strategy put in place by his predecessor, his mission will be to continue to refocus SGPBS’ business and establish a new, targeted momentum for growth.

Thieffry has been appointed Chairman of the Board of SGPBS. He succeeds Guillaume Lejoindre, who has decided to pursue other opportunities outside Societe Generale group, and whom SGPB wishes to thank for the eight years he has dedicated to developing the group’s private banking business in Switzerland. The appointment of Thieffry, with his experience and knowledge of the local market, underlines both the continuity of SGPBS’ strategy and its long-term commitment to Switzerland.

Jean-François Mazaud, Head of Societe Generale Private Banking, says: “With his 20 years of experience within Societe Generale group and his track record of success in private banking, Olivier Lecler brings the full range of his know-how to his new position. To achieve its goal, SGPBS will benefit from the strength of the relationships he has built with his clients and will be able to count on the exceptional quality and motivation of his teams. Societe Generale group, with its recognised expertise and historic presence in the country since 1897, has significant ambitions for its private banking business in Switzerland, a key market for the Group.”
