Patrick Desmarès

Senior Advisor Efma France
Although retired since 2015, Patrick Desmarès continues to contribute to the success of Efma by ensuring its relationship with major consulting firms as well as banks and insurance companies based in France. Many of the latter were founding members of the association 50 years ago.
Patrick was CEO of Efma from 2003 to 2015 and notably contributed to its transformation and renewal after the 2008 crisis. His watchwords at the time: a strategy focused on content and networking, and a forced march towards internationalization and digitalization. A program that is still relevant today. Patrick draws on more than 40 years of experience in retail financial services.
