Based in New York, Fosseprez will report locally to New York City-based Stephane Publie, head of CIN and GIB for the Americas, and globally to Helene Combe-Guillemet, head of GIB in Paris.

In his new role, Fosseprez will supervise ECM (Equity Capital Markets), M&A, SET (Strategic Equity Transactions) and SFS (Structured Financial Solutions).

The firm has appointed Fosseprez to promote greater development of its investment banking business in the Americas.

Fosseprez, who has spent 13 years at the bank, has served in New York City as managing director, global head of telecoms and head of TMT (Telecom-Media-Tech Investment Banking) Americas since 2012. Previously, he served in Paris as M&A banker, TMT investment banking director and, later, TMT managing director and global head of telecom.

Prior to this, Fosseprez worked as a French naval officer and as an auditor with Price Waterhouse Coopers in Paris.

Meantime, the firm has also appointed John Hartke as head of M&A for the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Prior to joining Crédit Agricole, Hartke has spent for 10 years an M&A investment banker with Merrill Lynch in New York.

Jean-François Deroche, CEO of Credit Agricole CIB in the Americas, said: "Benoit’s deep, successful experience as an investment banker in many markets in EMEA, Asia and Americas makes him well suited to lead this effort, which will involve both domestic and cross-border capabilities.

"John will now supervise the origination and execution of M&A transactions, in addition to continuing to develop business in all three countries," he added.
