KBL European Private Bankers (KBL epb), which operates in 50 cities in Europe, announced today the appointment of Bruno Lèbre as Group Chief of Wealth Management Solutions, a Group Executive Committee position.
A highly respected private banking professional with nearly three decades of experience in increasingly senior roles, Lèbre will lead the enhancement and expansion of the group’s full service offering.
He will commence his new role at KBL epb in Luxembourg in July 2017, subject to regulatory approval.
Previously a member of the Executive Committee at Société Générale Private Banking, Lèbre most recently served as Global Head of Compliance for the private bank following earlier stints as Global Head of Wealth Management Solutions and Global Head of Investment Solutions for the same business unit.
A French national who earned his master’s degree from Pierre and Marie Curie University (Paris VI), he earlier served as CEO of Société Générale Corporate & Investment Banking in Switzerland, as well as Chairman and CEO of Lyxor Asset Management.
In parallel, Carlo Friob, who currently serves with distinction as Group Chief Commercial Officer and member of the Group Executive Committee, will assume the role of CEO, Luxembourg, focusing on the development of KBL epb’s business in the Grand Duchy.
In addition to taking responsibility for all relevant KBL epb Luxembourg business units, Friob will serve as Chairman of the Luxembourg Management Committee.
“At this transformational moment for our group, Bruno Lèbre will play a key transversal role, ensuring that we offer truly best-in-class products and services to every client across our footprint,” said Yves Stein, Group CEO, KBL epb.
“Just as we are delighted to welcome Bruno to the Group Executive Committee, we are equally pleased to announce the appointment of Carlo Friob as CEO, Luxembourg,” said Stein.
“Over the past three years, Carlo has strengthened our private banking operations across Europe, providing strategic direction to our affiliates, and ensuring their individual growth and collective contribution to our shared success,” Stein said. “He will now focus his business acumen and leadership skills on our business here in the Grand Duchy.”
