KBL European Private Bankers (KBL epb) has hired Emmanuel Fievet as a member of the Group Executive Committee, where he will serve as chairman of the KBL Luxembourg Executive Committee and CEO of KBL Luxembourg, the group's private bank in the Grand Duchy.
In his new role at KBL epb, which is led by Group CEO Jürg Zeltner, Fievet will contribute to the group's long-term growth as an agile and advice-led organisation - managed in a culture of partnership - that focuses on earning the trust of the individuals and families it serves.
