Changes in governance
In light of the new governance challenges in Europe linked to the growing concerns of investors for environmental and social issues and shareholder engagement, Loïc Dessaint, until now Chief Executive Officer of Proxinvest, has decided to focus on research and has been appointed Chief Governance Officer. He will be responsible for European research, ESG issues, investors support on shareholder engagement and dialogue with companies on corporate governance. Charles Pinel, Partner and Head of Client Relations for the past 19 years, will succeed him as Chief Executive Officer.
In addition, Jehanne Leroy has been promoted to Director of French Research and Pierre-Antoine Bourgoin has been appointed Company Secretary.
Creation of a Clients and Digital Committee
In order to be as close as possible to its clients’ expectations, Proxinvest has created a Clients and Digital Committee chaired by Marianne Demarchi, which will improve the understanding of clients’ expectations in terms of products and their delivery.
