US-based asset servicer Citi has hired Aftab Ahmed to head up its Taiwan operations.
A former country officer for Citi’s Philippines business, Ahmed will be chairman of Citibank Taiwan, subject to regulatory approval.
He succeeds Paulus Mok, who retired from his role as chairman of Citibank Taiwan and chief executive of Citi Taiwan at the end of 2022.
Ahmed, a 40 year veteran at Citi, previously worked in Taiwan as head of Citi’s global consumer banking and technology operations.
According to Tim Monger, Citi’s head of north and east Asia, Taiwan is “one of Citi’s most important markets in the region”.
