Societe Generale has named Richad Soundardjee, previously its head of global capital markets for the CEEMEA region, as group chief region officer for the Middle East, as well as chief executive officer of Societe Generale Dubai.

Based in Dubai, Soundardjee now reports to Slawomir Krupa, the bank’s CEO of Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa for corporate and investment banking, private banking, asset management and securities services.
