BNP Paribas has promoted Pierre Joseph Costa to the role of global head of energy commodities export and project (ECEP) Asia. Costa’s move to the bank’s Singapore offices highlights the region’s increasingly cohesive commitment to Asia, a region of huge importance to the division’s activities.


Costa, who joined the French bank in 1988, had previously held the position of global head of export finance at the BNP Paribas in Paris, since April 2004.


In addition, Olivier Paul has now been appointed as the new global head of export finance in Paris, moving from his previous position as chief operating officer of ECEP at BNP Paribas.
