Brussels-headquartered Candriam Investors Group has appointed Laurent Sécheret as global head of communications and member of the executive committee.
Sécheret, who will be reporting to Candriam’s CEO Naïm Abou-Jaoudé, joins Candriam from La Financière de l’Echiquier, where he started working as head of marketing and communications in 2015. Prior to that, he worked as head of communications at AXA IM and formerly as head of AXA’s group communications department – a role he held during nine years.
Naïm Abou-Jaoudé, CEO of Candriam Investors Group and Chairman of New York Life Investment Management International, said: “Sécheret brings us many years of experience in marketing and communication and will support our group to further build on its strong growth momentum in Europe and internationally, where our total AuM increased by 57% over the past three years.”
Candriam Investors Group, owned by New York Life Investment Management (NYLIM), currently manages €111bn in assets.
