Sanjeeb Chaudhuri will carry out two roles from Mumbai. As Regional Head, South Asia, Sanjeeb will have responsibility for Standard Chartered’s Consumer Banking operations in India, and the Heads of Consumer Banking in Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka will report to him. Senior Consumer Banking marketing staff who are mostly based in Singapore, will also report to him in his capacity as Group Chief Marketing Officer.
Sanjeeb comes to Standard Chartered from Citibank, where he was most recently CEO, Retail and Commercial Banking for Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa, while also holding the role of Head Retail Banking and Chief Marketing Officer for Europe, Middle East and Africa. He was also a member of the Citi CEO Leadership Forum, the Citi Global Digital Council and the Citi Global Advertising Council.
Consumer Banking CEO and Group Executive Director Steve Bertamini said the new appointment reflected the growing importance of South Asia to Standard Chartered’s Consumer Banking business. The new stand alone South Asia regional role would enable increased management focus on this dynamic region.
“Sanjeeb is an internationally experienced banker and a well respected leader with a reputation for driving change and innovation and delivering strong top line and bottom line results. His track record of achieving and hands-on approach is exactly what we need to take our Consumer Banking transformation to the next level in South Asia and drive our brand recognition to greater heights globally,” said Steve.
Neeraj Swaroop, Regional Chief Executive, India and South Asia, Standard Chartered, said “We are delighted that Sanjeeb has joined us. His considerable experience will help us strengthen and grow the consumer banking business and increase brand recognition in a strategic growth market like India for the group globally.”
Sanjeeb takes over the South Asia mandate from Vishu Ramachandran, who maintains his responsibilities as Regional Head Middle East, Pakistan and Africa. Sanjeeb takes on the Chief Marketing Officer role from James Galloway, who has been appointed Global Head Preferred and Personal Banking.
