Three major appointments at Arval
Arval has announced three major appointments. François-Xavier Castille (pictured left), previously Arval International Managing Director, has been appointed the company’s Deputy CEO, as well as its Managing Director for Europe, in which role he succeeds Grégoire Chové, who has left the company; and for Latin America.
The second appointment is Stefan Majtán (pictured centre). Formerly General Manager at Arval Italy, he takes over from Mr Castille as Arval International Managing Director. Both report to Alain van Groenendael, Chairman and CEO of Arval.
Mr Castille joined Arval in 2000. He has been General Manager of several key markets: Portugal, Spain, and then France. In 2018, he was appointed Managing Director of Arval’s international business. He is a member of the Arval Executive Committee.
Mr Majtán joined Arval in 2003, developing and creating Arval entities in Central and Eastern Europe. From 2011 to 2019, he was head of Arval’s Central Europe region. In 2019, he was appointed to lead Arval Italy. As Managing Director of Arval International, he will supervise all Arval countries, except France, Italy, the UK, Spain and LatAm. He joins the Arval Executive Committee.
Thirdly, Mr Castile is not the only new Deputy CEO at Arval. That title has also been accorded to Bart Beckers (pictured right), who also remains the company’s Chief Commercial Officer, and is a member of the Arval Executive Committee.
“I am confident that François-Xavier and Stefan will continue to actively support our countries across our Arval Beyond journey,” said Mr Van Groenendael. “In his new role as Deputy CEO and Chief Commercial Officer, I am also happy to count on Bart’s extended knowledge of our business and industry.”
