His experience and skill set are both first class and will complement our existing expertise and local client base. In particular, his trade and commodity finance experience will be an asset to our growing energy and natural resources team, led by Nick Dingemans and John Zadkovich, who are also based in Singapore. We now have four partners on the ground serving clients across the region and continue to invest in the office as a key part of our international strategy.”
