Societe Generale Corporate and Investment Banking (SG CIB) on Wednesday announced that Julien Lascar will take up a new position as Head of Global Market Sales for Europe within the firm’s global markets division.
Lascar’s new role will make him responsible for leading business strategy across all asset classes in Europe. He will also be in charge of monitoring the heads of sales in individual countries within Europe.
In his new position, Lascar will report to Yann Garnier, Head of Sales for Global Markets. According to Garnier, Lascar’s newly-created role will enable SG CIB to “further enhance Societe Generale’s Global Markets top positioning in Europe”.

Lascar, who has worked in London since 2015 alongside members of SG CIB’s FX team, will remain in the UK and fulfill his duties from there. The scope of his new responsibilities does not include France, meaning Laurent Besnainou will continue in his role as Head of Global Markets Sales for France.
Oh-n the rise in Asia
Joining Lascar on his ascent within SG CIB’s ranks is Inhwan Oh who has been promoted to Head of Global Market Sales for Asia-Pacific. Oh’s change in roles takes place less than one year after Florian Dumas was made Head of Sales for SG CIB’s fixed income and currencies division in Asia.
This is the second promotion for Oh in less than three years and his new role will come with a fresh set of responsibilities. Moving forward, the company says that Oh will be key in developing new business in Asia.
Oh will report to Yann Garnier, as well as Jerome Niddam, SG CIB’s Head of Global Markets for Asia-Pacific. Commenting on the move, Niddam noted that Oh has a “deep understanding of our clients’ needs” and will be able to “lead the commercial strategy” across the Asia-Pacific region.
