HSBC has appointed Lewis Sun as head of payments and cash management (PCM) in China.

Sun joined the bank’s China PCM team in 2002 as a product manager and has since held roles including head of product, head of sales and, most recently, head of global banking corporate sales. He has 18 years of banking and IT experience.

Sun succeeds Kee Joo Wong who was recently appointed as regional head of PCM for HSBC Asia Pacific. He reports functionally to Wong and locally to Terence Chiu, head of commercial banking, HSBC China, and the head of global banking and markets, HSBC China.

Wong comments on the appointment: “Lewis’ thorough understanding of the Greater China market landscape and his dedication to helping our clients address their treasury challenges are well recognised. Over the last five years, Lewis has played an instrumental role in maintaining close relationships with clients and regulators in China. As China continues to drive the global economy, Lewis will be instrumental in contributing to HSBC’s growth strategy in Asia.”
