KBL European Private Bankers (KBL epb) has announced the appointment of Colin Price as group chief operating officer and member of the Authorised Management Committee, subject to regulatory approval.
Price, who has a 35-year track record of successfully advising leading companies worldwide on how to unlock their full potential, will oversee a wide range of support functions, including IT, Operations, HR, Marketing and Real Estate. He will personally participate in the group's long-term success through a significant co-investment.
In his new role, he will work alongside Eric Mansuy, who assumed the Group COO role last fall and has been named group chief information technology & operations officer, reflecting his areas of core expertise and reporting to Price.
Mansuy, who joined KBL epb in 2014 as group chief information officer, previously served as chief information officer at RBC Investor Services. He earlier held a number of senior roles in the IT department at Banque Internationale à Luxembourg, rising to the position of Head of IT Services.
A former partner at PwC and McKinsey who set up his own boutique consultancy in 2014, Price earlier served as CEO of Heidrick Consulting, a division of Heidrick & Struggles. He has also served as a visiting professor at Imperial College London and an associate fellow at Saïd Oxford, the business school of Oxford University.
