Candriam Investors Group, the European asset manager with some €91bn (£71bn) in AUM, has hired Marion Leblanc-Wohrer as global head of corporate comms.
Reporting into Candriam CEO Naïm Abou-Jaoudé, Leblanc-Wohrer will split her time between Candriam’s offices in London, France and Benelux.
Abou-Jaoudé said: “It is with great pleasure that we welcome Marion Leblanc-Wohrer to Candriam. She is a highly experienced media professional who also shares our convictions and our values. Marion will help drive and sustain our growth momentum – as reflected in the 40% increase in our AUM over the past two years – and to promote Candriam’s development in Europe and further afield.”
She was most recently editorial director at L’Agefi Hebdo, a weekly French financial magazine, where she has worked since 2007. Prior to that she edited a number of titles – including Banque et Informatique – and was assistant editor at Thomson Reuters in London. She started her career at KPMG before moving to the World Bank as an analyst.
Leblanc-Wohrer said: “I am delighted to be joining Candriam, an asset manager driven by strong convictions and renowned for its innovative products and solid performance. A huge driver was also its 20 year heritage in responsible investing, which I believe is an important part of the investment landscape.”
