Standard Chartered has appointed GC Legend Lisa Robins from Deutsche Bank as global head of transaction banking (GTB).
In the new role, she will oversee all of Standard Chartered’s commercial businesses, including cash management, trade finance, securities and trust services.
Robins, who was inducted as a GC Legend in 2014, was previously head of global transaction banking (GTB) for Asia-Pacific and vice president for corporate and investment banking for the region at Deutsche Bank for over six years.
Prior to Deutsche Bank, Robins was based in Beijing overseeing JP Morgan’s Treasury and Securities Services businesses.
Alex Manson, Standard Chartered’s former global head of transaction business, will take up a new role within the bank.
“As a banking veteran with deep experience running international transaction and commercial banking across complex markets, Lisa will ensure that the business goes from strength to strength as we deliver our network and innovative solutions to our clients,” said Simon Cooper, CEO of corporate and institutional banking, Standard Chartered.
Earlier this month the bank hired Andrew Au as regional head of global banking for Greater China and North Asia.
