HSBC has named Lewis Sun as head of payments and cash management (PCM) in China.
Sun will take over from Kee Joo Wong, who was recently appointed regional head of PCM for HSBC Asia Pacific.
Sun has been part of the bank’s China team since joining as a product manager in 2002, and has since held roles including head of product and head of sales. Most recently, Sun was head of global banking corporate sales.
He will report functionally to Won and locally to head of commercial banking and head of global banking and markets for HSBC China.
“Lewis’ thorough understanding of the Greater China market landscape and his dedication to helping our clients address their treasury challenges are well recognised,” Wong said. “Over the last five years, Lewis has played an instrumental role in maintaining close relationships with clients and regulators in China. As China continues to drive the global economy, Lewis will be instrumental in contributing to HSBC’s growth strategy in Asia.”
