Société Générale's rejiggering of its debt capital markets origination team in London has prompted the departure of Jean-Marc Blankert, head of debt capital markets origination for financial institutions. He left the firm as SocGen announced that Arnaud Achour has taken on the new role as head of DCM origination covering all client segments. It is not known where Blankert is headed and he could not be reached.

Achour's old role as head of DCM corporate origination will be filled by Jean-Francois Mazaud, formerly head of equity-linked origination at SocGen, and Zeina Bignier is staying on as head of public and sovereign debt origination; both are based in Paris.

"This is a rationalization of SocGen's approach to origination rather than a strategic reconsideration," Achour said. He reports to Olivier Khayat, global head of debt capital markets.
