It is undeniable that more and more women are emerging in leadership roles nowadays, even in some of the most male-dominated industries.
With that being said, meet Karel Doshi who was recently named as the new Head of Commercial Banking (CMB) in Malaysia by HSBC. Karel’s appointment will be effective from today (1st July) as well as she will be based in Kuala Lumpur.
Karel who has over 20 years of experience in growth and risk management will be responsible for one of the leading commercial banking franchises in Malaysia, servicing SMEs, mid-market, large corporates and international subsidiaries.
With the new post, she will report regionally to Amanda Murphy, head of commercial banking (South & Southeast Asia) and in Malaysia to HSBC Bank Malaysia CEO Omar Siddiq.
“Karel will lead the commercial banking business in Malaysia and continue to drive our ambition for growth while deepening our presence in the local SME and mid-market space and capturing the increasing proportion of international trade flows into Malaysia,” said Omar.
Karel joined HSBC in 2007 and brings diverse coverage and advisory experience spanning corporate, commercial and investment banking. She brings a track record of deep customer connectivity after over two decades of experience in Malaysia.
HSBC has played a key role in the growth and development of Malaysia’s economy for more than 130 years and continues to be a strategic growth market for the HSBC Group, offering significant opportunities as an international investment hub and a springboard into Southeast Asia.
Best wishes Karel Doshi on this new post!
