According to ANZ Group Chief Executive Officer, Mike Smith in a recent statement on the appointment, “as trade and investment flows in the Asia Pacific region continue to grow, we are seeing a significant expansion of medium-sized corporates doing business with and within Asia.”
“This continues to be an important growth opportunity for ANZ and coordination of the segment fits well with Mark’s existing responsibility for Commercial Australia, our largest Commercial client franchise,” Smith added.
Mr. Whelan has been with ANZ since 2004, having previously served as Managing Director at the group’s Institutional, Commercial, and Private Banking sectors in the Asia Pacific (APAC), a European, and American region. Prior to this he also worked at Citi and Westpac.
