ANZ announces new appointment to boost presence in Asia

The major lender has appointed a new international head of loans and specialised finance to “strengthen the bank’s lending efforts” in Asia.

KPMG’s global head of debt advisory, Richard Dawson, has been appointed by ANZ to the role of head of loans and lending finance – international.

Mr Dawson will assume the role on 23 April, and he will jointly report to ANZ’s managing director of loan and specialised finance – international, Christina Tonkin, and group executive – international, Farhan Faruqui.

Mr Dawson, who will be based in Hong Kong, has previously held roles as regional head of corporate & structured DCM with RBS in Hong Kong and as global head of syndicated loans at ABN AMRO in London.

Ms Tonkin believes that the new appointee is well equipped to develop ANZ’s presence in the Asian market.

“Richard has spent a significant portion of his career in Asia before moving to the UK, so we’re confident he’s the ideal person to help grow our capability in the loans and specialised finance space across our international network,” Ms Tonkin said.

“His extensive experience successfully leading geographically dispersed teams responsible for origination and delivery of bonds; syndicated loans; acquisition finance; and export, project and commodity finance will make him a great addition to the business.”
