Charlotte Dennery is the new CEO of BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions (BNPLS) and now reports to Thierry Laborde, deputy chief operating officer of BNP Paribas.

Dennery will be responsible for continuing the development of the business and for “amplifying the pace of digital transformation and internationalisation” of BNPLS.

She takes over the role from Didier Chappet who, after five years at the helm, will keep providing his expertise to the business during a few months, as a “senior advisor” for the general management committee.

Before joining BNPLS, Charlotte Dennery, 50, was CEO of FundQuest, the multi-management subsidiary of BNP Paribas Investment Partners, since 2009 and in parallel, since 2010, chief operating officer of BNP Paribas Investment Partners, in charge of Finance, IT, Operations, Procurement and Legal divisions.

Previously, from 2004 to 2009, she was CFO and head of strategy at BNP Paribas Insurance – Cardif.

Dennery joined the BNP Paribas Group in 2001, within the development and strategy department, in charge of development projects, firstly for CIB in Paris, and then, in New York, for the group in North-America.

Alumni of the Ecole Polytechnique and of the Ecole Nationale de la Statistique et des Etudes Economiques (Paris Graduate School of Economics, Statistics and Finance), Dennery devoted the 10 first years of her career to the French administration. After a stint at the National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies, she entered in 1993 the French Ministry of Economy, Finances and Budget, where she assumed several roles. She was notably in charge of financing Public Authorities and later in charge of defining the HR strategy for the French public sector.
