He is the author of several international academic publications in his field.
“We are delighted to welcome two highly experienced professionals, Nico Picard and Stéphane Albert, to BIL’s Management Board. Following the departure of Pierre Malevez, whom I would like to thank for his hard work in raising BIL’s profile, we felt it was important to strengthen our management team. I look forward to their respective contributions to the development and strengthening of our market position,” said Hugues Delcourt, Chief Executive Officer at BIL.
