HSBC appoints John Flint as new chief executive
Banking giant HSBC has named John Flint, current head of retail banking and wealth management, as its new boss.
Mr Flint, who takes over from outgoing chief executive Stuart Gulliver, will start his new role next February.
The move sees Europe’s biggest bank once again promote a company insider to run the firm.
The appointment is the first big decision by the bank’s new chairman, ex-AIA Group boss Mark Tucker, who joined HSBC at the start of this month.
