Kuan Ern Tan and Joe Lai are the new co-heads of APAC IBCM, also reporting to Miller with a dotted regional reporting line Low.
Tan joined the bank in 2010 from J.P. Morgan, and will continue to be based in Singapore. Lai moved to Credit Suisse in 2014 from Deutsche Bank. He will continue to be based in Hong Kong and will retain his title as co-head of real estate APAC, alongside Angelo Scasserra.
Rehan Anwer is appointed CEO for Southeast Asia, reporting to Low, in addition to his role as head of IBCM for Southeast Asia.
Anwer joined Credit Suisse in March 2007 after almost 10 years at Deutsche Bank covering various markets in Asia-Pacific.
The latest appointments bring a wealth of experience in the APAC region, with deep, long-standing client relationships and a track record of driving collaboration across geographies and with wealth management, Credit Suisse says.
The strong leadership team will continue to embed a culture of risk management and accountability and build lasting value for the bank’s clients, it adds.
