Bertrand Dumazy named best CEO in the 2020 Institutional Investor ranking

The Institutional Investor monthly just released its annual ranking of international corporate executive teams. For this challenging 2020 year, Bertrand Dumazy, Chairman and CEO of Edenred, was named best CEO in his category. Patrick Bataillard, Group Executive Vice President, Finance, is ranked second best CFO.

Bertrand Dumazy is ranked first in the International edition of Institutional Investor in the Business & Employment Services category – an award with particular significance in 2020 as leaders around the world have been called upon to make exceptional decisions in the difficult context of the coronavirus epidemic crisis.

Throughout this uncertain period, awardees were able to demonstrate responsible leadership and financial stewardship to convince and reassure the market players. Some 1 200 investors, buy-side analysts and sell-side researchers from over 500 companies voted to determine the 2020 results.

Edenred is actually honored twice this year with Patrick Bataillard, Group Executive Vice President, Finance coming second in the best CFOs ranking.

"I see this award as a recognition of our capacity to share a clear vision for Edenred with investors, shareholders and all of our stakeholders. I wish to thank all 10,000 members of the Edenred family worlwide for their continued commitment and support, without which none of this would be possible," declared Bertrand Dumazy on this occasion.
