The economic players of Savoie were numerous in their response to the invitation of Banque Populaire AURA, a new entity resulting from the merger of the Banque Populaire des Alpes, the Massif Central and the Loire and Lyonnais. Lionel Baud, CEO of BAUD Industries and Vice-President of the bank welcomed them, underlining the tremendous vitality of the region’s entrepreneurial spirit. “You have come in strength and this shows how our region is a land of entrepreneurs.”
In a friendly atmosphere, the customers and members made acquaintance with the new strong men of the bank which now brings together 3,800 employees.
