Our Founders

René de Picciotto and Philippe Setton are two Bankers behind the creation of Fransad in 2010. Passionate entrepreneurs, they founded, in particular, Financière Fransad in 1981 in partnership with UBS and the Compagnie Bancaire Genève (CBG) in 1995. They also head up a group that includes in its portfolio ownership of about ten hotels in the world, a shopping center of more than 100,000 m2 in St Petersburg and investments in the field of new technologies and renewable energy.

Alessandra de Picciotto, actively involved in the family business since 1998 and CEO of Fransad from 2011 to 2018, is henceforth Vice President of the Board. She is highly committed to the business performance and the development of the company.
