Euroclear Bank has appointed Stéphane Bernard as CEO of its Poland branch.

Based in Krakow, Bernard will report to Valerie Urbain, CEO of Euroclear Bank.

Bernard will combine the role with his duties as managing director of asset servicing and transaction operations at the bank.

He is also a member of the board of directors of the ESES central securities depositories (CSDs) Euroclear Belgium, France and Netherlands.
