Standard Chartered Names New Global Leader of Transaction Banking
Lisa Robins has been appointed as global head of transaction banking at Standard Chartered, the company announced on Wednesday.
A 38-year veteran of international business, Robins joins the Standard Chartered team from Deutsche Bank, where she had served since 2011. Before this tenure, she spent 23 years with JP Morgan Chase.
“For more than a century, Standard Chartered has been a leading trade bank supporting economic flows across Asia, Africa and the Middle East,” Simon Cooper, CEO, of corporate and institutional banking at the company said via release. “Transaction Banking is in our DNA and is integral to our future. 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.”
Robins also commented on her new role, stating that she was “excited” to get started as she has been an admirer of her new employer for some time.
“I have admired its many critical strengths like the Bank’s commitment to its global network, diverse talent, breadth of products and market leading platforms,” said the Stanford and Tufts graduate. “I am very much looking forward to leveraging my experience, built over many years across various growth markets, to see how we can further accelerate growth for the business and support the banks’ wide and deep base of clients to become an even stronger competitor in the industry.”
Robins was awarded ‘Transaction Banker of the Year Award’ by The Asset’s Triple A awards and also by The Asian Banker in 2013. In 2016, she was conferred the IBF Fellow award by the Institute of Banking and Finance Singapore which recognizes industry veterans who exemplify thought leadership and commitment to industry development.Last modified: January 17, 2018
