Angela Martins is leaving Arab Banking Corporation’s Brazilian operation to join Banco Pine as executive director.

In her new role, Martins will be responsible for the Sao Paulo bank’s international division with a focus on structured trade finance.

Martins worked as the director of the international department at Banco ABC Brasil.

“One of my challenges is to make Pine an active player in the structured trade financing. I am extremely excited with this opportunity and I am fully convinced on the potential of the mid-sized Brazilian banks,” Martins tells GTR.
