Head of Financial Crime Compliance, Commercial Banking
Ben has been with HSBC for 23 years, working in seven countries covering roles in commercial banking, trade finance, cash management, technology and credit risk as well as compliance. Ben joined HSBC in 1997 and moved to the UAE to run corporate banking and trade finance for HSBC Ras Al Khaimah.
For much of the next ten years Ben worked in cash management and trade finance in Asia, including as Head of the Global Liquidity and Cash Management in Korea from 2005-2008, before moving to Canada as Head of Global Trade and Receivables Finance in 2011. After concluding an extensive business de-risking, in parallel with a re-structure and pivot to growth with a doubling of the revenue stream, customers voted HSBC Canada the best bank for trade finance in the 2015 Euromoney survey.
Ben has been in the US for six years, where he was initially responsible for trade finance governance, operations, financial crime controls and client service across North America, before moving into his current role at the end of 2017. Ben lives in Connecticut and works out of the HSBC New York office, when possible.
