UniCredit appoints new Global Co-Heads of Cash Management


UniCredit has today announced the appointment of Cédric Derras, its former Global Head of Cash Management, as Head of CIB Middle East and Africa (MEA), based in Abu Dhabi.

At the same time, UniCredit has appointed Raphael Barisaac and Emmanuel De Rességuier as Global Co-Heads of Cash Management.

All three appointments are effective immediately, with Derras reporting directly to Alfredo Maria De Falco, Head of CIB Italy and Deputy Head of CIB with oversight of UniCredit’s International Network.

Barisaac and De Rességuier will report to Luca Corsini, Head of Global Transaction Banking.

Derras has developed considerable international experience through several senior roles at Société Générale, Deutsche Bank and most recently, UniCredit, which he joined in 2015 as Head of Cash Management Sales, Italy. He was promoted to Global Head of Cash Management in 2017.

The MEA region plays a key role in UniCredit’s International Network, supporting the international needs of clients based in the region’s core countries, whilst delivering the Group’s unique Western, Central and Eastern European network and leading product platform to non-European multinationals and financial institutions.

In his new role, Barisaac will maintain his current position as Global Co-Head of Trade and Working Capital Solutions, drawing upon his digital expertise to improve synergies between both teams.

De Rességuier joins UniCredit from Fennech Financial, a company he founded that assists corporates and financial institutions in digitalising their finance operations. Previously, he held a variety of senior cash management roles at Deutsche Bank, including Global Head of Insurance and Specialty Finance, Global Head of Working Capital Advisory, Head of Non-Bank Financial Institutions in EMEA and Head of GTB for France.
