(CercleFinance.com) – Yves Perrier, who has chaired the board of directors of Amundi since 2021 and whose mandate is coming to an end, will be replaced by Philippe Brassac, the asset manager announced in a press release on Wednesday.
Considered the architect of the creation of Amundi in 2009, Yves Perrier agreed to take over as chairman of the group’s board of directors two years ago in order to support the company in a ‘transitional’ period.
His mandate to come to an end after the general meeting of May 12, it is Philippe Brassac, the general manager of Crédit Agricole since 2015, who will succeed him.
Yves Perrier held the position of CEO from 2010 until 2021, a period during which Amundi experienced strong growth by becoming the European leader in the asset management industry.
He is expected to be named honorary president of the society.
