By Edil Corneille
Standard Chartered has created a new Chief Executive Officer role for the Greater Bay Area. Anthony Lin, currently the Chief Executive Officer, Taiwan, will assume this new role, where the target effective date is October 1, 2020. Lin will work closely with Mary Huen, CEO of Hong Kong and Jerry Zhang, CEO of China to lead and drive the strategy in the Greater Bay Area, and strengthen the cross-boundary cooperation of various businesses.
Benjamin Hung, Regional Chief Executive Officer, Greater China & North Asia and Chief Executive Officer, Retail Banking & Wealth Management elucidated, “The Greater Bay Area is a strategic agenda of primary importance to Standard Chartered. The appointment of the CEO of GBA reflects our long-term commitment in the Greater Bay Area, where financial and economic activity growth is creating greater demand for crossboundary services due to favourable policies. With Anthony’s extensive banking experience, we hope to further strengthen our cross-boundary expertise and fully capitalise on opportunities arising from China’s opening and RMB internationalisation to provide seamless and innovative banking services for individuals and corporate clients in the Greater Bay Area.”
Lin has more than 25 years of banking experience and has served as the President, China, Bank of America, N.A., and a key position in Deutsche Bank (China). He joined Standard Chartered as a management trainee in 1995 and held various key positions across retail and corporate banking segments in Hong Kong and Shanghai.
In 2017, Lin rejoined Standard Chartered as Chief Executive Officer, Taiwan, and is said to have been instrumental in transforming the Taiwan franchise and in building a stronger, more efficient infrastructure to position Standard Chartered for sustainable growth in Taiwan.
