Lazard Ltd. said Matthieu Pigasse will step down as chairman and chief executive officer of its operations in France at the end of the year to pursue an entrepreneurial venture.

A new leadership team in France will be announced shortly, the investment bank said Sunday in a statement. Pigasse, 51, is leaving alone, according to a person familiar with the matter. Jean-Louis Girodolle, a managing director in Paris, is staying at the firm.
