Société Générale has appointed a new global head of metals and mining finance.

Based in Paris, Stephanie Clement de Givry moves to the role from being head of the energy and metals and mining finance teams for Asia Pacific and co-heading the natural resources and energy financing group with Eric Saux, head of traders, commodity finance and agribusiness, Asia Pacific.

Joining the bank in 1996, Clement de Givry’s previous roles include being based in Mexico, covering structured commodity finance transactions with a focus on soft commodities. In 2000, she relocated to Paris and was deputy head of the metal structured commodity finance team covering the CIS, Sub-Saharan Africa and Asian regions. In 2006, based in Shanghai, she was head of the China platform, and since 2009 had previously been based in Hong Kong.

Clement de Givry replaces Chin-Eav Eap, who moves to Hong Kong to take up the newly-created role of regional head of metals and mining finance for Asia Pacific. He will report regionally to Daniel Mallo and will focus on further developing the bank’s franchise on the back of recent investment in the business line.

Mallo has moved from New York to take over Clement de Givry’s former duties within the region. Regionally, Mallo will report to Ashley Wilkins, head of global finance for Asia Pacific, and will be globally reporting to Olivier Musset, global head of energy, and Clement de Givry.

Eap and Mallo joined Société Générale in 1990 and 1993 respectively. Both have previously been based in Paris and New York with the bank.

The appointments became effective on September 1, 2014.
