Gindre wants to wake a giant

Yann Gindre, one of the more colourful Eurobond origination heads in London in the 1990s, is returning to banking.

More on Yann Gindre

For the past three-and-a-half years he has been a partner at Truffert and Company, a debt capital markets headhunting firm set up by Philippe Truffert, Gindre's boss at UBS in the early 1990s.

Before joining Truffert he held a variety of positions as head of debt origination, including  spells at Commerzbank, UBS, BZW, and Chase Manhattan.

But he's not going back to the same kind of role. Instead he is to be the head of the London office of IXIS Corporate and Investment Bank, the new name of CDC IXIS.

Gindre decided to go back to banking after completing his MBA at the London Business School. “With the market slowdown after September 11 I decided I ought to do something to occupy my time in addition to working at Truffert, and had always wanted to do an MBA,” says Gindre, who studied part-time over two years.

He takes over from Guido Rauch, who was global head of equity derivatives in addition to running the London office. He resigned in mid-November.

The bank has been going through changes following the acquisition in July by Groupe Caisse d'Epargne of a controlling stake in CDC IXIS, creating France's third-largest bank.
