Published: Jul 2019

27th June 2019 – Citi has appointed Hsiu-Yi Lin as ASEAN Head of Citi Commercial Bank (CCB). She will lead the CCB business across ASEAN in addition to her current role as CCB Head for Citi in Singapore.

In this new role, Hsiu-Yi will be responsible for driving business strategy across ASEAN where Citi banks multinational and local clients across Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia. These represent some of the bank’s fastest growing commercial banking markets in the region where supply chain shifts are seeing increased investment and trade flows through the bank’s leading ASEAN network.

Many of these companies increasingly want to tap into Citi’s strong institutional digital value proposition and utilize the bank’s regional and global network to support their growth. Citi’s network spans over 100 countries with leadership positions regionally and globally across trade, cash management, foreign exchange, capital markets and advisory.

“ASEAN represents a key opportunity for the Commercial Bank in the region, with growing cross-border flows. It is home to a fast growing breed of emerging corporate champions who we want to partner and grow by supporting our clients with their cash management, trade, foreign exchange, capital raising and potential M&A; needs. Hsiu-Yi’s strong track record in managing various businesses across different markets means she is well placed to further grow our business in ASEAN,” said Rajat Madhok, Head of Commercial Banking, Asia Pacific.
