In 2021, Yves Perrier accepted the chairmanship of Amundi’s Board of Directors in order to support the company during a transition period. This period will end following the Annual General Meeting which will be held on 12 May 2023. Consequently, Amundi's Board of Directors approved the following changes to the governance at its meeting of 13 March 2023:
- Philippe Brassac, who joined the Board of Directors in October 2022, will replace Yves Perrier as Chairman following the Annual General Meeting of May 12;
- Yves Perrier will be appointed Honorary Chairman of the company.
Philippe Brassac commented,
I extend my warmest thanks to Yves for his achievements, on both my own behalf and on behalf of Crédit Agricole Group. Visionary and pragmatic, Yves was the architect of the creation of Amundi in 2009 and has driven the remarkable development of the company, which has now become the European industry leader. Under his leadership, Amundi has made responsible investment a hallmark of its strategy, in line with the orientations of the Crédit Agricole Group. I would also like to underline the exemplary nature of the managerial transition carried out which has enabled Amundi - the 2021 and 2022 results attest to this - to confirm its profitable development momentum.
Yves Perrier added,
As I prepare to hand over my responsibility as Chairman, I would first like to express my pride in the company's journey. Today, Amundi is the European leader, respected for its expertise, economic performance, and commitment as a responsible investor. I want to share this pride with all managers and employees for their commitment to our shared values. Amundi's success is theirs. I would also like to thank our clients, for their trust, and our shareholders – first and foremost Crédit Agricole – whose support has been constant.
Amundi has a robust business model and strong growth drivers for the future. I am certain that, under the leadership of Valérie Baudson and with the support of Philippe Brassac and Crédit Agricole Group, Amundi will continue its growth journey.
For my part, among my future responsibilities, I will pursue my commitment to promote finance that serves the country's transition and development challenges
