All-In on Centric?

Mr. Friess, Mr. Ferreol and Mr. Coppier will all be reporting to Thomas Soede, BNP’s co-Head of Electronic Markets. In his new role, Mr. Friess will help augment product development for the Centric platform, as well as its other applications, including the FX+Cash bundle – he joins BNP from Global Trade & Transaction Banking (GTTB).

Alternatively, Mr. Ferreol is also coming over from GTTB, where he will work with Mr. Friess, managing the FX+Cash bundle operations.

Finally, Mr. Coppier is moving into the new role, having already been with BNP Paribus previously, albeit in a consultancy position. His primary objective will be to help streamline the launch and eventual distribution of Centric.
