Wells Fargo has appointed Kai Fehr as head of international trade services (ITS) for Asia Pacific.

He replaces Daniel Son, who has relocated to Charlotte, North Carolina, to lead the same department in the US. Fehr will report to Chris Lewis, head of ITS and is based in Singapore.

Fehr joined Wells Fargo in 2014 to head up the Asia ITS sales team, before which he headed up Barclays trade and working capital team in Asia. Before Barclays, he managed structured facilities for UniCredit’s Asian clients, also in Singapore.

In his new role, Fehr will be responsible for business development, relationship management and distribution for customers across APAC. The group itself services companies of all scale in their import and export business.

Daniel Son has returned to Charlotte after many years working for Wells Fargo and previously Wachovia in Asia.
