Jacques Beyssade is to join Groupe BPCE’s General Management Committee in the capacity of Deputy Chief Executive Officer on February 15, 2016. 

In addition to risk functions, which have been under his authority since 2015, he will henceforth oversee the compliance, security and financial auditing functions. IT security teams will also report to him in a functional capacity. Pascale Parquet, Group Head of Compliance and Security and member of the Executive Committee, will continue to fulfill her functions within the new division.

At the end of 2008, he joined Natixis with the task of identifying and organizing the assets to be run off by the bank, before being appointed Chief Risk Officer in 2009.
