BNP Paribas’ Seoul branch on Friday said it appointed Hugues Antier as its new chief operating officer.
Antier will have various duties overseeing information technology, general management, finance, tax and operational permanent control, the bank said.
The COO started his banking career at the France-based BNP headquarters in 1996 after earning a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Angers in France. Following the merger between BNP and Paribas Bank in 2000, he worked as an internal auditor and risk management analyst at BNP Paribas.
Prior to his latest appointment, Antier was in Hong Kong, supervising the securities COOs of South Korea, Taiwan, India and Indonesia.
