Gian Maria Gros-Pietro

Building a benchmark reputation in tough times

Distinguished Speaker Seminar: Gian Maria Gros-Pietro in conversation

Italy has faced more than its share of political, economic and financial headwinds in recent years.

Markets have often attributed risks far greater than those seen on the ground. Broader uncertainty in Europe and Britain has accentuated these pressures. Against this challenging backdrop, Intesa Sanpaolo has built itself into one of Europe’s most robust and profitable banks. This comes with a responsibility to create value beyond shareholder returns, supporting economic inclusion, culture and the circular economy.

Gros-Pietro has been Chairman of the Management Board of Intesa Sanpaolo from May 2013 to April 2016. He also Chairs ASTM and is an independent member of the Board of Directors of Edison. In July 2014 he was appointed Vice President of ABI where he also serves as a member of the Executive Committee. He is a member of the Executive Board of FeBAF (The Italian Banking, Insurance and Finance Federation) and of the Employers’ Association of Turin. He chairs the Scientific Committee of Nomisma and is a member of the Executive Committee of ISPI, the Institute for International Political Studies. He was a member of the National Council for Economy and Labour for ten years.
