Jacques-Philippe Marson is described by an employee as an “outstanding European” with a force of character that inspires passion in those around him, and a determination to succeed.
Jacques-Philippe began winning the respect and admiration of employees in 2000 when he took over the securities service division at a time when the future of custody was unclear. Richard Wohanka, Chief Executive, Fortis Investments
