Frédéric Oudéa will succeed François Pérol as Chairman of the FBF

The Executive committee of the French Banking Federation (FBF) has appointed Frédéric Oudéa, Chief Executive Officer of Societe Generale, as Chairman of the FBF for a period of one year as from 1 September 2015, in accordance with the professional organisation's articles of association. Accordingly, Mr Oudéa will succeed François Pérol, Chairman of the Groupe BPCE Management board.

Philippe Brassac, Chief Executive Officer of Crédit Agricole SA, will become the FBF's Vice-Chairman, while Michel Lucas, the Chairman of Confédération Nationale du Crédit Mutuel, will remain the organisation's Treasurer. The members of the Executive committee also include Jean-Laurent Bonnafé, Director and Chief Executive Officer of BNP Paribas, François Pérol, Chairman of the Groupe BPCE Management board and Rémy Weber, Chairman of the Management board of Banque Postale, in his capacity as the French Banking Association's (AFB) representative.

The FBF was founded in 2001, and represents all the French and foreign banks that operate in France. It is involved in all banking and financial issues at the French, European, and international levels, as well as in all issues relating to the role of banks in society. The FBF has representative offices in Brussels and Frankfurt.

The French banking sector, which employs 370,000 people, is one of France's leading private employers. Banks finance the economy, and therefore play a key role in growth and employment in France. Loans outstanding to the French economy have experienced regular growth over the past few years, and exceeded the historic threshold of €2 trillion in October 2014
