HSBC said in a statement that in his new position he will report to John Laurens, head of global payments and cash management, Asia-Pacific. Levieux takes over the position which was previously held by Laurens and whose promotion, announced in March, was triggered by the elevation of Lawrence Webb to the newly created role of global head of trade services and supply chain.
The activity in this division, particularly the promotion of Webb to a global role based in Hong Kong rather than London, is an indication of the importance HSBC attaches to its cash management and trade finance business in the Asia-Pacific region.
Levieux will be responsible for the management and development of cash management products and services throughout the region.
Levieux joined HSBC in 1998. In his previous role, Levieux was responsible for developing the bankÆs liquidity management and account services. He was also a key member of the working group that led to the product capabilities HSBC has in place today.
Before joining HSBC, Levieux worked for Banque Nationale de Paris in Hong Kong.
