State Street Corporation has named Ian Martin as the head of Asia-Pacific alongside his current role as head of global services in the region.
A State Street veteran for 25 years, Martin succeeds Wai-Kwong Seck, who will move back to his hometown of Singapore after an eight-year stint in the role.
Martin will continue to be based in Hong Kong and will report to Andrew Erickson, head of global services worldwide.
Commenting on Martin’s appointment to the new role, Erickson said: “Ian has led the majority of State Street’s business in the region throughout his career including investment servicing, trading and research within global markets, and our data and analytics businesses.”
Martin said he looks forward to overseeing the development of the industry’s “first-ever global platform connecting the front, middle and back office.”
State Street has been operating in the Asia-Pacific region for more than 40 years and has offices in Australia, Japan, mainland China, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand and Brunei.
