SocGen’s Krupa Replacing Bond Vet Overlander as Americas CEO

Updated on

Societe Generale SA named Slawomir Krupa to succeed Wall Street fixed-income veteran Craig Overlander as chief executive officer for the Americas.

Krupa, who spent much of his first decade at SocGen in its inspections department, will take over Jan. 1 and focus on growing the business “in an evolving U.S. regulatory context,” the lender said Thursday in a statement. In 2009, he was named regional CEO of the corporate and investment banking division in Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Overlander had held senior fixed-income roles at Bear Stearns Cos. and Wachovia Corp. before joining SocGen in 2010. After 33 years in the financial industry, he “has decided to give his professional path a different turn for personal reasons,” the company said.

Krupa will report to Didier Valet, head of global banking and investor solutions, according to the statement.
