SGCIB brings in ex-CFO for client strategy
Hero Brahms, the former CFO and board member of Linde, the German-based technology group, has decided to make the leap from the corporate world to the banking world with his move to SG Corporate & Investment Banking (SGCIB). Brahms, 63, has become a non-executive senior advisor in Germany and will assist SGCIB in its development strategy in Germany. Brahms will also use his CFO and corporate background to help with the bank's approach to corporate and financial institution clients; with so much focus on the importance of banking relationships his experience should prove very useful.
Pascal Auge, country head for Germany at SGCIB, said: ?We will continue to boost our client approach thanks to Hero's addition to the team and his dedicated spearheading of the development of institutional and corporate relationships in Germany.?
As well as working as CFO at Linde, Brahms was a board member at Kaufhof Holding and Hoesch, while the period between 1991 and 1994 saw Brahms heavily involved in the privatisation of German assets as deputy president of the federal agency for privatisation founded after German reunification.
