Natixis, the asset management unit of French bank Groupe BPCE, has appointed Nathalie Bricker as its new CFO and member of the senior management committee.

Bricker will assume the new responsibility on 6 August 2018. She replaces Nicolas Namias, who has now joined BPCE as a management board member.

In the new role, Namias will oversee finance, strategy and legal affairs.

At Natixis, Bricker previously held various other roles such as head of accounting standards and systems, and head of accounting and ratios. She joined the executive committee of the firm in June 2016.

She formerly also worked as head of the central accounting department at Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations and deputy head of the accounting department and head of the corporate accounts sector at CDC IXIS. She started her career at KPMG.

Natixis has recently made several senior-level appointments. The firm appointed Francois Riahi as its new CEO in April 2018, following by the appointment of Veronique Sani as its new COO last month.

Natixis offers asset and wealth management, corporate and investment banking, insurance and specialised financial services. The firm employs over 21,000 staff.
