Episode 069 – The Importance of Technology in Treasury with Séverine Le Blévennec

In this week’s episode of the Treasury Career Corner podcast I’m joined by Séverine Le Blévennec, the Senior Director of the Honeywell Europe, Middle East and Africa Treasury team and global lead for Treasury Technology. We draw from her vast experience in the treasury world to uncover the secrets to her success and how treasury has changed over her career.

Honeywell International Inc. is an American multinational conglomerate company that produces commercial and consumer products, engineering services and aerospace systems. Along with her team, Séverine supports over 460 affiliates in 55 countries and runs the in-house bank of the group.

Since she joined Honeywell in ‘06 Séverine has been running its in-house bank and managing many treasury projects in the fields of cash management, cash investments, EU regulations compliance and lobbying, tax planning and M&A. Her kaizen spirit and strong appetite for technology has led her to steer Honeywell treasury’s transformation and digitalisation. In fact, in June ’18 Séverine obtained her RPA Developer certificate and launched Honeywell Treasury Robotics initiative.

Before she joined Honeywell, Séverine spent 7 years at GMAC European Treasury Centre where she was involved in all aspects of liability management: capital market programs, credit lines negotiation and documentation, securitisation transactions and innovative secured credit lines set up. The stellar work she’s done hasn’t gone unrecognised as Séverine’s been honoured by numerous international awards in the fields of cash and liquidity management, innovation and technology or treasury strategy. She’s also a recognised voice of the industry and an acknowledged speaker in the fields of treasury regulations and innovation.

Séverine holds a bachelor’s degree in Business and Finance (ICHEC), an EFFAS certification (European Federation of Financial Analysts) and is Six Sigma Green Belt.
