BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions recently made several executive changes and promotions, including the appointment of Pascal Layan to deputy CEO, Wolfgang Pinner to chief data officer and Delphine Roché to director of transformation and IT.
Layan simultaneously joined CEO Charlotte Dennery on the general management committee. He will retain his responsibilities as director of international business lines and marketing and take over the management of consulting activities.
Pinner will retain his position of chief operating officer in charge of country supervision. The supervision of the holding company and the strategy and development division will now also be attached to him.
Roché was previously responsible for the relationship with retail banking in France. She will also join the executive board and oversee IT corporate, process and efficiency, digital transformation, procurement, and personnel and property security.
Roché began her career at BNP Paribas’ corporate and investment banking in the media and telecom finance department. After having contributed to the launch of Lean Six Sigma at BNP Paribas, she joined Leasing Solutions in 2007. She then took the lead of marketing and communication and business intelligence. Since November 2015, she had been the deputy head of the Bank Leasing Services France division, which offers financing solutions to BNP Paribas Group’s French retail banking clients.
Dennery commented, “We are delighted to welcome Delphine Roché to the now rejuvenated and perfectly balanced general management committee. Her skills and determination will play a key role in continuing the transformation plan of BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions, particularly, in the digitalization of the company at all levels, to be able to meet the new expectations of our employees, our customers and our partners.”
