ICMA Women’s Network (IWN) announces new Chair of the IWN International Steering Committee
Nordic Investment Bank
Angela Brusas, Director, Funding & Investor Relations, Nordic Investment Bank, has been elected to replace Nathalie Masset, Head of Fixed Income at Euronext, as Chair of the ICMA Women’s Network (IWN) International Steering Committee, after a transitional period.
Nathalie Masset has announced that she intends to start end-of-career leave in October 2023. ICMA and the IWN would like to thank Nathalie for chairing the IWN International Steering Committee over the last 2 years, particularly as it adapted to a more global model comprising 14 different regions.
Under Nathalie’s exemplary stewardship, the IWN has become an internationally recognised ICMA offering, now counting close to 4,000 members spanning 300 ICMA member firms. Nathalie has also helped to increase the IWN’s global presence with regular contributions to IWN output (including its website), and regular engagement with the ICMA Committee of Regional Representatives. In addition, for over 6 years Nathalie has demonstrated her passion for the IWN in the French region, in particular securing interesting speakers to lend a fresh perspective on topics of relevance to the region.
The incoming Chair, Angela Brusas, has been an already active member of the Nordic IWN region (including directing an IWN event taking place on Tuesday 13 June in Helsinki) and champion of women’s rights. Given Angela’s familiarity with the mission and spirit of the IWN, ICMA is confident that she will further inspire the International Steering Committee members to develop the IWN’s creativity and initiatives, as well as increasing its visibility both in the Nordic region and beyond.
ICMA and the IWN would like to thank Angela for taking on this important role in furtherance of its mission to encourage, support and inspire women at all stages of their careers, and ensure gender equality within the bond markets.
