Bruno Rousset heads Arval Trading
Bruno Rousset (left) has been appointed as the new general manager of Arval Trading, the lease company’s online portal for cross-border trading in used vehicles.
He succeeds Mathias de Toldi (middle), who had led Arval Trading since 2015, after stints heading the Arval subsidiaries in China and Morocco, among other appointments within the BNP group. He has a new job as Director of Strategy and Development of BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions. That company’s remit covers not just vehicles, but also the financing and leasing of equipment, real estate and IT suites.
A graduate of Sciences Po in Aix and Purdue University in the U.S. Mr Rousset also holds degrees in NLP and sophrology. He has been involved in the financial sector since 1988 and joined BNP Paribas Group in 2000. He started and headed Arval Greece (2007-11), and after two years as regional director for Arval Asia moved to Moscow, where his previous appointment was as general manager of the Arval Russia.
Mr Rousset is succeeded in that role by Orhan Cetin (right), a Renault veteran who joined TEB Arval in Turkey in 2013, focusing on procurement and remarketing.
