One of Lazard’s senior executives in Italy, Massimo Pappone, is planning to leave the company to concentrate on his entrepreneurial and private equity endeavours.

According to BNN Bloomberg, Pappone, who most recently served as head of Lazard’s equity capital markets advice in Italy and financial institutions group, will depart the company before the end of the year.

The executive has recently been involved in some of the most significant M&A deals and IPOs in Italy. He will keep track of important financial institutions’ dealings for Lazard to maintain reliability.

His team will continue to monitor FIG activities.
