HSBC has made three additions to its global trade and receivables (GTRF) management team.
Mark Emmerson has been appointed global head of export for growth, Adrian Rigby has been named global head of product, and Kuresh Faizullabhoy is now global head of middle office. They are all members of HSBC’s GTRF executive committee, and all report to James Emmett, global head of trade and receivables finance.
According to a spokesperson for the bank, the roles demonstrate HSBC’s commitment to export for growth.
In his new role, Emmerson will take responsibility for the bank’s engagement with the “export growth” agenda of governments and policy makers in key markets. His previous title at the bank was head of trade and receivables finance, Continental Europe. He continues to be based in the UK.
Rigby moves from his previous role as global head of receivables finance and supply chain, and his new position will see him oversee all GTRF products. The move will further integrate the bank’s trade and receivables products. He too will work out of the UK.
Faizullabhoy’s will take responsibility for the overall execution of all trade, guarantees and receivables finance transactions, including processing quality and efficiency, technical advisory and client servicing. His previous position at the bank was global head of trade operations. He will divide his time between the UK and Hong Kong.
Commenting on the new hires, Emmett says: “These appointments will further strengthen our business, focusing on growth and delivering strong customer service. HSBC is actively supporting the export agendas of governments around the world, helping our clients make the most of opportunities arising from new global trade corridors and facilitating economic growth across developed and faster growing markets.”
