Current position: Director general for finance from August 2006Previous position: Chief executive, Agence France Trésor, December 2003-August 2006

Bertrand de Mazières has the tough job of not only fulfilling EIB’s significant funding requirements, but also overseeing the bank’s treasury, its liquidity management, its loan pricing and back-office functions.

The job has become tougher in the last two years as unfounded rumours of the EIB’s involvement in all kinds of rescue plans for Europe resulted in unprecedented turbulence for the credit. He has also had to cope with a funding programme that has almost doubled in size to €80bn, not to mention the political wrangling that inevitably takes place behind the scenes at such a pivotal European institution.

But his deep knowledge of markets, acquired from many years in the business — and the support and respect he commands from EIB dealers and his funding teams — has allowed the EIB’s programme to be completed with relative ease.

A senior SSA banker describes de Mazières as a highly intelligent man who understands the important position the institution holds within Europe. He nominated him as a member of EuroWeek’s Top 25 for his stabilising influence on markets and the efforts he has made to promote and develop euro debt markets.
