Gallagher adds new string to BNP Paribas bow


BNP Paribas has promoted Claudine Gallagher to head up its new Americas business.

Previously head of securities services for North America, Gallagher now also oversees operations in Latin America. Effective as of January, she is responsible for driving growth across the entire Americas region, including executing global segment and product strategies.

The announcement follows on from an ongoing expansion for BNP Paribas Securities Services in Latin America, where it now provides local custody and clearing in Brazil, Colombia and Peru.

Development in the region was led by Alvaro Camuñas, who was appointed to the position of global head of sales and global relationship management in 2016.

Andrea Cattáneo, country head for Brazil, and Claudia Calderón, country head for Colombia, will both now join the regional executive board.

José Placido, global head of client development at BNP Paribas Securities Services, said: “Throughout the past five years, Claudine Gallagher has been instrumental in building our US capabilities. With her leadership, we will continue to strengthen our presence across the Americas.”

He added: “This is our latest step to support clients’ ambitions in this high-potential region and make the most of our collective strengths.”
