March 23, 2021, 08:09 AM

Alan Turner has been appointed Head of Commercial Banking effective today, succeeding Linda Seymour who took on the role of President and Chief Executive Officer of HSBC Bank Canada in September 2020. In this role, Turner has responsibility for HSBC’s Large Corporates and Small and Medium Enterprise banking segments, as well as leading Global Trade and Receivables Finance in Canada.

Turner was most recently Head of Commercial Banking for HSBC in Singapore. Before joining HSBC in 2017, Turner spent 25 years at a major British bank, working in corporate and investment banking in London, Hong Kong and Sydney with roles at the local, regional and global levels. This includes 10 years in Asia, with regional and sector expertise gained from a variety of senior executive roles across trade finance, liquidity and cash management, and leveraged finance.

Linda Seymour, President and Chief Executive Officer, HSBC Canada, said: “I am delighted to welcome Alan to our Commercial Bank in Canada. His strong sector and global expertise, paired with HSBC’s network covering 90% of global trade flows, will help accelerate our progress in better supporting clients in their international expansion plans.”

Turner said, “No one is better placed to serve Canadian companies doing business here at home or internationally. Our transactional banking solutions, access to our international network and relationship driven model, place us well to support their ambitions. I look forward to leading the talented Canadian team at the heart of our business’ success.”
