HSBC has continued making changes to its executive personnel group, this time appointing Sean Henderson as its newest deputy Head of Debt Capital Markets (DCM) for Asia-Pacific (APAC), according to a Reuters report.

The move is tendered with immediate effect and will see Mr. Henderson reporting to Alexi Chan, HSBC’s Global co-Head of DCM.

In the new role as deputy Head of DCM, Mr. Henderson will focus on managing HSBC’s DCM teams across the APAC region in such countries as Australia, India, Indonesia, Korea, New Zealand and Singapore, among others. Despite the new role however, Mr. Henderson will also continue to head HSBC’s capital financing out of Singapore.

Mr. Henderson has been a mainstay at HSBC for over a decade, having joined the group back in 2005. Between 2005 and 2010 he worked as the Head of HSBC’s Asian debt syndicate, which paved the way for a relocation to Australia in 2010 and a senior role that saw him managing the group’s DCM platform. HSBC has since filled Mr. Henderson’s void in its Australia office, naming Andrew Duncan as Head of DCM last month.

HSBC has been in a state of flux during 2015, and despite the propensity of senior announcements, the group is largely shifting its personnel worldwide. Nowhere is this truer than the UK, Brazil and Turkey, which is slated to lose nearly 25,000 jobs due to failing profitability.
