SGSS boosts Netherlands, Nordic development

SGSS boosts Netherlands development Societe Generale Securities Services (SGSS) has set up a team in Amsterdam. It says this will support its development in the Netherlands and the Nordic region, covering Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.

It created two new positions in the process, commercial director for the Netherlands and the Nordic Region and head of business development for the Netherlands and the Nordic region, appointments to which have taken immediate effect.

Roel van de Wiel has been appointed to the former, joining from State Street Sector Solutions where he was responsible for business development in the Netherlands, the Nordics and Belgium. His primary objective will be to enhance and develop SGSS’ business in the region across all client segments.

Bastiaan Aalders has been appointed to the latter, responsible for developing and implementing business and client solutions for the region. Both report to Mathieu Maurier, global head of sales and relationship management.

“These appointments are important milestones in SGSS’ development plans in Europe,” confirms Maurier. “They will allow SGSS to strengthen its coverage in the region, where the Societe Generale group is already present, by offering clients its whole range of services, in particular the externalisation of non-core activities linked to regulatory requirements.”
