BNP Paribas, France’s largest bank, announced Monday the appointment of Stéphanie Maarek as its new head of compliance.
Maarek has served as BNP’s chief conduct and control officer for global markets and corporate and institutional banking since 2017. She will succeed Nathalie Hartmann as head of compliance on Jan. 1 and join the bank’s group executive committee.
Hartmann will become an adviser to the general management and director of various companies of the group, the bank said.
“Since 2014, Nathalie Hartmann has made decisive contributions in building the group’s integrated compliance function and served as head of the function since 2017,” said Jean-Laurent Bonnafé, director and chief executive officer of BNP Paribas, in a press release. “Under her leadership, compliance has continually reinforced our expertise in the different domains of noncompliance risks.
“I am confident in the abilities of Stéphanie Maarek to take over from Nathalie Hartmann to continue the compliance function’s transformation.”
Maarek joined BNP in 2006 within its global markets division. She rose through the ranks in trading and risk management roles across New York, London, and Paris.
BNP on Tuesday separately announced the appointment of Emmanuelle Bury, chief compliance officer for BNP Paribas Americas, as London branch and U.K. country head, effective March 1. No replacement for Bury as CCO for BNP Paribas Americas was disclosed.
