BNP Paribas names new country head

Posted by Anton Murray Consulting on 18 May, 2015

BNP Paribas has appointed a new country head of Australia and New Zealand and chief executive of its Sydney branch.

On 15 June, James Gibson will succeed Didier Mahout who has been made head of Central Europe based in Budapest, after eight years in Sydney.

Gibson will be responsible for managing the bank’s overall activities in Australasia. He will report to Eric Raynaud, chief executive of BNP Paribas Asia Pacific.

“Under Didier’s leadership, our business in Australia has been reinforced significantly,” Raynaud said.

“As the oldest major foreign bank in Australia, BNP Paribas continues to underline its commitment to the Australasian market with strong investment in our people, our products and our systems. James’ appointment comes at a time when we look to continue the growth of our business in Australasia and where we are seeing sound business momentum.”

Gibson joined BNP Paribas in 2011 in Hong Kong and was most recently head of regional human resources Asia Pacific since 2012. He has previously held different senior banking positions for a number of leading financial institutions in France, the Nordic Region, the United States and the United Kingdom.
