Laurent Choain has been appointed as chief HR officer at Mazars.
Choain has experience in talent development in both a professional capacity and in the educational field.
He was until recently vice president for leadership and management at French bank BPCE.
At Mazars, Choain will plan and drive the group’s HR policy, particularly working towards optimising the integrated partnership’s international talent strategy.
Choain’s responsibilities will include developing the Mazars University, which is a forum for learning and exchanging views between staff and partners from all over the world.
Choain will also manage local HR teams to ensure there are consistent HR strategies in Mazars offices across all 56 countries the firm operates in.
Mazars president Patrick de Cambourg said Choain’s appointment demonstrates the group’s interest in talent management and leadership development.
“Laurent Choain has a very varied and diverse background; he is capable of understanding our aspirations in these areas and the values we attach to them,” de Cambourg said.
