Standard Chartered’s staffing overhaul continues with appointment of Karin Flinspach

UK banking giant Standard Chartered has announced that Karin Flinspach, Citibank’s Head of Payment and Receivables, will take up a leading role in its international Transaction Banking Division.

The post, which is effective immediately, sees Flinspach  named Head of Currency Products, based in Singapore, where she will report to Global Head of Product Management George Nast. She will be responsible for developing and managing the bank’s cash capabilities in payables and liquidity products.
