Marie Diana Lynn Coronel-Singson has been named head of global corporate banking for Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG) in the Philippines.

Based in Manila, she joins from Standard Chartered, where she spent two decades, most recently as country head for financial markets. Before this, she worked for HSBC and a number of local financial institutions.

Coronel-Singson’s role is to grow the bank’s corporate banking book in the Philippines while maintaining strong relationships with existing clients. She reports to Sanjiv Vohra, general manager for the Philippines, who joined the bank last September from Citi.

“In recent years, we have gained good traction and deepened our presence and network by developing strong relationships with many local and regional corporates in the Philippines. Given her wealth of experience, we expect Diane to drive our business to the next level,” Vohra says.
