MITSUBISHI UFJ Financial Group, Inc.’s banking arm, the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd (MUFG) has appointed Marie Diana Lynn Coronel-Singson as head of global corporate banking for its Manila branch. Singson joins the bank on January 17, and is based in Manila.

Singson will be responsible for deepening market penetration among existing clients as well as identifying and developing new client businesses for the bank in the Philippines.

“In recent years, we have gained good traction and deepened our presence and network by developing strong relationships with many local and regional corporates in the Philippines. Given her wealth of experience, we expect Diane to drive our business to the next level,” says Sanjiv Vohra, general manager of the global corporates for Asia and Oceania region in Singapore. Vohra joined MUFG last September and was Citibank’s country head for Philippines and Guam from 2006 to 2013.

Prior to joining MUFG, Singson was the concurrent head of Standard Chartered Philippines’ financial markets and financial markets sales, where she was responsible for the bank’s management and governance of the financial markets business in the Philippines.

She started her 20-year tenure with Standard Chartered Bank in the Philippines with financial markets (treasury) in 1996 and was in charge of setting up the sales desk. Singson then moved on in 2005 to become head of financial institutions and corporate & institutional clients, managing and driving the FI business for the bank.

In her earlier career, she had been with Philippine Commercial International Bank for five years with treasury marketing, responsible for marketing foreign exchange hedging products to the corporate clients of the bank.
