HSBC names John Flint as next CEO

Credit Crunch Fails To Wipe Out HSBC Profit

London-based HSBC on Thursday named John Flint, now head of its retail bank, as its new Chief executive, effective February 21.

Flint begins his new role on February 21 after Gulliver had already announced his intention to step down after more than seven years, during which time he has overseen a huge reduction in staff numbers and operations amid a troubled period for the bank and sector as a whole.

During his career at HSBC Flint, 49, has worked across most of its businesses and spent his first 14 years in Asia, giving him the breadth of experience seen as vital for the CEO role.

Recently-appointed chairman Mark Tucker said Flint had "a great understanding and regard for HSBC's heritage". According to Haberturk, Flint, which has been working in various stages of HSBC since 1989, has previously been chief of staff of Gulliver and experienced executive officer in seat of CEO. The new boss is a 28-year veteran of the British bank and a familiar face in Asia.
