As an Executive Director in the Investment Banking division of Goldman Sachs, based in Paris, Renaud is in charge of the coverage of large corporate accounts
A graduate of the Ecole des Hautes Etudes Commerciales (HEC) and the Ecole Nationale d’Administration (ENA), he was admitted to the Paris Bar School before beginning his career, in 2001, at JP Morgan in London, where he worked in their Investment Banking division in the Equity Research media team. The following year, he joined the New York-based restructuring practice of Ernst & Young’s Corporate Finance department. As part of his ENA training in 2005, Renaud became a member of the private office of the European Commissioner for External Relations, Ms. Benita Ferrero-Waldner.
In 2007, he assumed the role of Inspecteur des Finances at the Inspection Générale des Finances—the body within the French Finance Ministry in charge of carrying out strategic reviews and assessing the cost-effectiveness of public policies. Then, in 2010, he served as sherpa for former IMF Managing Director Michel Camdessus in his chairmanship of a working group to set a budget balance rule in France. Most recently, in 2011, he joined the Investment Banking division of Goldman Sachs—first in London, within the Financial Institutions group, and then in Paris, assuming his current role.
He is a former jury member of the affirmative action program at Sciences Po, where he also served as Assistant Professor of Economy. In addition, he is a board member at Frateli, an association tutoring high-potential students from low-income suburbs, and an honorary Institut Aspen France board member.
