Founded in 2009, Bordeaux City Bond is a simplified joint-stock company (SAS). The majority shareholders are the Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI) and Vinexpo.
The remaining capital is held by leading players in the wine trade, the logistics industry and the banking sector.
Jean-Claude LASSERRE was the first President of Bordeaux City Bond, and a former Interregional Director for the Customs authorities.

In January 2014 Jean- Claude LASSERRE was appointed Honorary President.
Philippe DUMAND, President of Bordeaux City Bond since January 2014, is director of the company La Chartronnaise and an elected officer of the Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce for the period 2011 – 2015.
