Asia’s DBS has made three senior hires to its global transaction services (GTS) business.
Soumitro Mukerji has joined the bank as chief operating officer for GTS.
Reporting to DBS’s group head of GTS Tom McCabe, Mukerji is responsible for increasing the efficiency and profitability of GTS operations and end-to-end business processes.
Specifically, he will oversee the GTS investment agendas, business risks and controls, governance and audit relationships.
Mukerji has more than 20 years of experience, recently serving at ABN Amro/RBS’s commercial and consumer business for Asia Pacific as the regional head of service delivery.
He has also already worked at DBS’s Amsterdam offices as chief financial officer for the bank’s global transaction banking business.
Also joining DBS’s GTS team is Meetu Singh, who will be the head of alliance management.
Singh comes from JP Morgan Chase’s global treasury services team where she handled sales to multinationals in Australia and New Zealand.
She has also worked at HSBC India where she set up the customer service team for the bank’s payment and cash management services.
Sean Chen has been appointed as head of GTS in Taiwan, where he succeeds Tam Thye Hung who will move internally to Singapore.
Chen comes to DBS from GHP Capital, a talent development consultant company, where he was both founder and president.
Group head of GTS McCabe comments: “We see tremendous growth potential for our GTS business in Asia and with our increased capabilities, DBS is ready to raise the bar for transaction banking in the region.”
