ANZ bank has appointed Mark Evans as Country Head Singapore, Head of South East Asia, India and Middle East, following Vishnu Shahaney’s decision to retire after a 40 year career with the bank.
Evans is currently head of strategic planning and execution, institutional based in Sydney. Prior to this, he was managing director, transaction banking, and chief compliance officer, along with head of trade and supply chain.
Prior to joining ANZ, Evans held senior roles at HSBC overseeing its trade and supply chain business first in Australia, before moving to Hong Kong in a leadership capacity across Asia Pacific. He has also held positions earlier in his career at National Australia Bank, Commonwealth Bank of Australia and St George.
Simon Ireland, ANZ Managing Director, International, Simon Ireland said Singapore is a critical market for the Bank given its status as a key financial hub and gateway location for the world’s largest multinational companies with trade and capital flows across ASEAN.
“As one of our most experienced banking executives in both our home markets and in Asia, Mark is well placed to drive strategic opportunities, growth and value for our business and our customers,” he said.
“Vishnu is a true veteran of our business and the banking industry across the region. The leadership team at ANZ thanks him for his significant contribution over many years and wish him well for the future.”
Evans will relocate from Sydney to Singapore in May and report to Ireland. Shahaney will depart the Bank in July to ensure a smooth transition.
