RIMES, the leading provider of managed data services for the buy-side, today announced Renaud Larzillière as the new President of RIMES’ Paris-based French office. The promotion comes at a time when French asset managers and buy-side firms around the world are increasingly adopting managed data services for the management and governance of index and benchmark data.
With the RIMES Paris office since its 2010 founding, Renaud Larzillière most recently served as Directeur General overseeing R&D, local sales and support functions throughout the French region. Prior to this, he was Head of Research and Development at RIMES developing the company’s suite of managed data services. He also was a Senior Project Manager at SAP Business Objects and Program Manager at Thales Services.
As Renaud Larzillière explains, “While RIMES already maintains a strong foothold in the French marketplace, tremendous opportunity awaits as buy-side firms continue to struggle with data management and data governance challenges. Many asset managers already rely on RIMES Benchmark Data Service® to free themselves from the ongoing burdens of data validation, data correction and workflow management. The strong interest in the recently introduced RIMES Reference Data Service and RIMES Data Governance Service further solidify RIMES’ place as the leading managed data service provider in the French region and beyond.”
In his new role, Renaud Larzilliere will report to Christian Fauvelais, Chief Executive Officer, Co-Founder and Director, RIMES, who commented: “Renaud boasts an impressive track record not only from a managerial perspective, but from a technical one as well. As an expert that is very much in tune with the specific needs of European asset managers, he is well-equipped to support our current clients and strengthen our market share during this time of significant industry change.”
