Citi has appointed Aveline San as its chief executive officer for Hong Kong and Macau, with responsibility for the bank’s businesses in the two markets, including fostering key client and regulatory relationships.
San – who is also the chief executive of Citibank NA, Hong Kong Branch, and succeeds Angel Ng who was appointed Asia head of Citi global wealth in April – reports to Tim Monger, head of the North and East Asia cluster.
San has 25 years of experience in banking. She joined Citi in April 2019 as regional chief compliance officer for Asia-Pacific. Prior to that, she was with UBS where she spent 14 years in various senior management positions, including Asia-Pacific group regional head of compliance and operational risk control, and general counsel of wealth management for North Asia.
“Hong Kong is a key growth market and regional hub for Citi,” Monger says. “As we continue to grow our wealth management and institutional client business in Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area, San’s deep understanding of the operating environment and key issues in the region make her the ideal leader to steer the Hong Kong franchise forward.”
