Edmond De Rothschild appoints new leadership amid privatisation

By Oliver Williams

Swiss banking group, Edmond De Rothschild, has named Vincent Taupin as its new CEO, just three weeks after announcing the group would go private.

On Wednesday, Edmond De Rothschild also announced the appointment of Cynthia Tobiano as deputy CEO and Christophe Caspar as head of Group Asset Management.

Both Tobiano and Caspar are members of the Group Executive Committee, alongside Jean Christophe Pernollet, Sabine Rabald, Diego Gaspari, Robert Jenkins and Pierre-Etienne Durand.

These appointments are effective from 14 March 2019.

Separately, Emmanuel Fievet will step down as the CEO of the Swiss arm of the group. Edmond De Rothschild announced his departure as part of the decision to take the group private.

The Swiss bank is expected to delist from the Zurich stock market in a deal valued in the region of CHF 99 million.

Formally head of asset management at the group, Taupin has a banking experience that includes several positions at Société Générale group.

In 2000 he became Chairman of Firmatex, which would go on to become Boursorama after the takeover of Finance Net and Selftrade. He also served as CEO of Crédit du Nord from 2010 to 2012.
