Asset servicers announce CEO appointments

changes, leadership, europeTwo of the most prominent asset servicers in Europe have announced changes to their leadership.

French asset servicer Caceis has named Jean-Pierre Michalowski as chief executive, effective March 1.

He takes over from Jean-Francois Abadie, who has announced his retirement.

Michalowski was most recently senior country officer of Singapore at Credit Agricole, one of Caceis’s parent companies, along with Santander.

Michalowski has held a number of front, back and middle office roles in his 35-year career, having started with French fund manager Meeschaert Rouselle in 1988.

Caceis is not the only asset servicer to be making changes at the top. State Street Bank International has named Andreas Przewloka as CEO and executive vice president, taking over from Stefan Gmuer. Based in Frankfurt, he will lead the bank’s custody and investment services operations in Europe.
