Standard Chartered reached within its ranks and appointed Subhradeep Mohanty its Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for Africa and the Middle East (AME) region.
Subhradeep makes the move from Standard Chartered Bank’s India franchise, where, as CFO, he was pivotal in driving the country’s strategic transformation and performance. Earlier on, he was the Global CFO of Retail Banking at Standard Chartered, based in Singapore, where he was integral in the Retail Bank’s large-scale global turnaround efforts.
Sunil Kaushal, Regional CEO for Africa and the Middle East, said: “We are pleased to welcome Subhradeep to the Standard Chartered AME Management Team. His commercial and management expertise complement our team as we continue to grow the business across our regional footprint.”
Subhradeep brings over 19 years of diverse and international experience in the banking sector to the AME region, having held senior positions at J.P. Morgan in Asia, and at American Express, in strategy, finance and business transformation across a diverse set of markets before he joined the financier.
Kaushal noted that with his extensive experience in the banking sector and thorough knowledge of dynamic and changing markets, the new CFO will play a crucial role in achieving the bank’s strategic priorities.
“I have confidence in Subhradeep and look forward to working with him in strengthening our position as the leading international bank in the region,” Kaushal concluded.
