Arval España has appointed Nicolas Laurant (above) as CFO and Beatriz Catalá (below) as head of marketing.

Owned by France-based financial services provider BNP Paribas Group, Arval offers vehicle leasing and long-term rental services, in addition to selling used cars to both consumers and dealers. It has 8,300 employees in 29 countries.

A “company man” of the old school, Laurant has worked for Arval for well over a decade, starting as an international finance controller trainee in 2011 and moving to Madrid a year later.

He has a BA in business administration from ESC Amiens and an MA in business administration from Kedge Business School.

Catalá has been at Arval for almost five years and has been promoted from the position of head of sales and digital marketing. She joined the company from clothing retailer Etam in 2019 and has also worked for SNCF Connect & Tech and Vente-Privee.

Catalá has a degree in economics from the University of Alicante and an MBA from Omnes Education.

Both Laurant and Catalá will join the company’s management committee and report directly to Arval España CEO Miguel Cabaça.
