DUBAI May 15 Bahrain-based Arab Banking
Corporation (ABC) has appointed Brendon Hopkins as
group chief financial officer, who will replace the retiring
incumbent Roy Gardner, the lender said on Thursday.
The appointment of Hopkins, who spent 18 years at Standard
Chartered including as chief executive officer for
Europe, will be effective as of June 1. Gardner had been CFO
since 2009, the statement added.
Hopkins is the second experienced Standard Chartered banker
to join ABC's senior management in recent months.
In February, ABC announced that Ray Ferguson, at the time
chief executive officer of Standard Chartered's Singapore
office, would join as group chief banking officer.
