Northern Trust has appointed former BNY Mellon managing director David Kim as head of sales for the corporate and institutional business across the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.
Kim will lead a team of sales managers across the region to continue growth in asset servicing sales to intuitional investors and investment managers.
Located in Singapore, he will report to Jon Dunham, head of global sales and William Mak, head of the APAC region.
He succeeds Angelo Calvitto who was promoted earlier this year to lead the bank’s business in Australasia.
“We continue to see demand from institutional investors and asset managers for our bespoke, leading-edge solutions. David’s invaluable experience will ensure we remain well-positioned to best support our clients’ requirements,” said Mak.
Kim joins from BNY Mellon where he oversaw a team of US asset servicing directors in Boston. He also spent a number of years based in Asia, including two in Singapore and six years in Seoul leading the asset servicing business in South Korea.
