Eurazeo announces CFO succession plan

by Alice Murray 4 November 2021

Eurazeo has appointed William Kadouch-Chassaing as CFO and head of strategy to succeed Philippe Audouin when he steps down from the executive board in March 2022.

In his new role, he takes on oversight of the Eurazeo’s financial affairs and fund management, coordination of its asset allocation strategy and its organic and external growth strategy, market and shareholder relations, as well as cash management and financing.

Kadouch-Chassaing was previously a corporate and investment banker, having held management positions in strategy and finance at JPMorgan and Société Générale. Among his other positions, he has served on Amundi’s board of directors since 2018.

In a statement, Eurazeo expressed its “deep appreciation and warm thanks to Philippe Audouin for his vital contribution to the Group and in support of its shareholders over the past 20 years. His illustrious career, his many achievements, and his singular place in the history of Eurazeo will be celebrated when his retirement takes effect, after the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting of April 28, 2022.”

Virginie Morgon, CEO of Eurazeo, commented: “I am especially pleased to welcome William Kadouch-Chassaing as the Group’s new Chief Financial Officer and Head of Strategy. It is a great opportunity for Eurazeo to be able to pursue and accelerate its development with the support of such a competent, recognized and committed professional with such a rich personality. His appointment to this strategic role reflects our deeply held ambition: boosting value creation for our shareholders and stakeholders and further accelerating the development of our asset management division. His years of experience at major international financial institutions will also be decisive in support of an organization seeing such strong growth. William will be a great successor to Philippe Audouin. Over the last 20 years, Philippe’s actions, his expertise and his personality have shaped our Group, which would not be what it is today without him. With friendship and immense gratitude, I thank him for his invaluable contribution and dedication to Eurazeo.”

The Drawdown spoke to Audouin back in March 2020 about the GP’s ESG-linked fund finance facility. Read the full article here.
