RBS finance chief Ewen Stevenson is to replace HSBC’s Iain Mackay at HSBC, it was confirmed today.
Mr Stevenson will succeed the retiring executive director and group finance director who has served HSBC for 11 years.
HSBC CEO John Flint described Mr Stevenson as a “strategic thinker” and “accomplished expert” in his field.
“He brings a wealth of international experience and will be a welcome addition to the senior management team,” he said.
Mr Stevenson, 52, announced he was leaving RBS just before the bank’s agm last month.
Since joining RBS in 2014 he has worked alongside CEO and fellow New Zealander Ross McEwan to turn around the bank’s fortunes following its £45.5 billion bailout in 2008.
