HSBC Appoints Rakesh Bhatia as Global Head of Trade and Supply Chain

HSBC has appointed Michael Young as the new country head and chief executive officer (CEO) of The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation in Indonesia, pending regulatory approval. Currently deputy CEO and chief technology and services officer for HSBC Turkey, he will succeed Rakesh Bhatia, who will move back to Hong Kong to take up the appointment of global head of trade and supply chain on 1 January 2011. Bhatia replaces Lawrence Webb, who has retired from HSBC after 29 years with the group.

Bhatia joined HSBC in 1987 and has worked in India, Bahrain, UK, Hong Kong, Singapore and Indonesia, with roles encompassing corporate and investment banking, personal financial services and group training. He was deputy CEO of HSBC Indonesia during 2002-2004, before becoming senior executive for strategy, propositions and channels for commercial banking Asia-Pacific. He then returned to Indonesia to take the helm as CEO in June 2007 and was instrumental in the group’s successful acquisition of Bank Ekonomi last year.

Young joined HSBC in 1979 and has extensive emerging markets experience. He has worked in a wide variety of roles in countries spanning Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and North America. In his current position in Turkey he has overseen operations covering 336 branches and offices in 65 cities and 6,400 employees. Prior to that, his roles have included deputy CEO in Singapore and Argentina and country manager for Chile.
