I wish to express my thanks to all the countries that supported my candidacy, with whom I have had numerous and fruitful exchanges in the past few months. I look forward to working with all shareholders, the management and the staff in the coming months, to implement the ambitious roadmap that was just agreed at the Annual Meeting.”
The Acting President of the EBRD, Jürgen Rigterink, said: “I congratulate Odile Renaud-Basso on her election. She will bring huge international experience to the EBRD and I know the Bank will be in very good hands as it enters the next chapter in its thirty-year success story. I look forward to welcoming her to our institution.”
As Director General at the French Treasury, Ms Renaud-Basso has overseen the development of France’s economic policies, leading on European and international financial affairs, trade policies, financial regulation and debt management.
