Eurazeo has appointed Antonio Weiss as a member of its Advisory Council.
Antonio Weiss served as Counsellor to the Secretary at the US Department of the Treasury during the Obama administration, following a nearly 20-year career at Lazard, where he worked in various leadership roles, including as Global Head of Investment Banking.
As an expert in global economic matters and financial regulation, Weiss will enable Eurazeo to benefit from his vision of major economic issues, expertise in financial markets, understanding of high-growth investment areas and the international business world.
Born in the US and having lived for many years in France, Weiss has a profound appreciation of French culture and the country as a whole. His contribution and advice will be invaluable to the Company in facilitating strategic development, bolstering its position in transatlantic markets and its wider geographic expansion, diversifying its business lines and establishing new partnerships.
Virginie Morgon, CEO of Eurazeo, says: “Eurazeo is proud to further step up its collaboration with such a respected and talented international figure. The ties that bind Antonio Weiss and Eurazeo are strong, built up over many years of unwavering loyalty. I am personally delighted that our Advisory Council and our Group as a whole will benefit from the input of such an eminent and distinguished colleague. Bringing Antonio into the fold reflects our international growth ambition, in particular in Europe and the US, where he has a deep understanding of the markets.”
Weiss, says: “I look forward to working with Virginie Morgon and the entire Executive Board in their continual quest for innovation and international growth.”
