Eurazeo has appointed William Kadouch-Chassaing as the Group’s new Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Head of Strategy to succeed Philippe Audouin when he steps down from the Executive Board in March 2022.

Eurazeo has appointed William Kadouch-Chassaing as the Group’s new Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Head of Strategy to succeed Philippe Audouin when he steps down from the Executive Board in March 2022.

Kadouch-Chassaing, 52, will lead the development and implementation of Eurazeo’s ambitious growth strategy. As a former corporate and investment banker who has held top management positions in strategy and finance at leading global financial institutions, including JPMorgan and Société Générale, Kadouch-Chassaing brings vast experience and a range of skills in areas that are key to the Group’s continued growth and expansion: oversight of the Group’s financial affairs and fund management, coordination of its asset allocation strategy and its organic and external growth strategy, market and shareholder relations, as well as cash management and financing.
 
Along with his expertise in the management of permanent capital allocation, which was one of his responsibilities at Société Générale, Kadouch-Chassaing has in-depth knowledge of the asset management industry and markets for third-party investment services. Among his other positions, he has served on Amundi’s Board of Directors since 2018. This dual expertise will contribute significantly to strengthening Eurazeo’s unique model as a leading European player in asset management with large capital resources. Drawing on his proven track record of success in working for leading global financial institutions, he will also play an active role in Eurazeo’s international expansion strategy.
 
Eurazeo says the retiring Audouin has made a vital contribution to the Group and has supported its shareholders over the past 20 years. 
 
Virginie Morgon, Chief Executive Officer of Eurazeo, says: “I am especially pleased to welcome William Kadouch-Chassaing as the Group’s new Chief Financial Officer and Head of Strategy. It is a great opportunity for Eurazeo to be able to pursue and accelerate its development with the support of such a competent, recognised and committed professional with such a rich personality. His appointment to this strategic role reflects our deeply held ambition: boosting value creation for our shareholders and stakeholders and further accelerating the development of our asset management division. His years of experience at major international financial institutions will also be decisive in support of an organisation seeing such strong growth. 

“William will be a great successor to Philippe Audouin. Over the last 20 years, Philippe’s actions, his expertise and his personality have shaped our Group, which would not be what it is today without him. With friendship and immense gratitude, I thank him for his invaluable contribution and dedication to Eurazeo.”
