Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG) announced the appointment of Marie Diana Lynn Coronel-Singson as head of global corporate banking for its Manila branch. She will be responsible for deepening market penetration amongst existing clients as well as identifying and developing new client businesses for the bank in the Philippines.
Prior to joining MUFG, Diane was the concurrent head of Standard Chartered Philippines’ financial markets and financial markets sales, where she was responsible for the bank’s management and governance of the financial markets business in the Philippines. She started her 20-year tenure with Standard Chartered Bank in the Philippines with financial markets (treasury) in 1996 and was in charge of setting up the sales desk. She then moved on in 2005 to become head of financial institutions and corporate & institutional clients, managing and driving the FI business for the bank.
In her earlier career, she had been with Philippine Commercial International Bank (PCIBank) for 5 years with treasury marketing, responsible for marketing foreign exchange hedging products to the corporate clients of the bank.
“Given her wealth of experience, we expect Diane to drive our business to the next level,” said Sanjiv Vohra, general manager of the global corporates for Asia and Oceania region in Singapore.
MUFG has been operating in the Philippines for more than 60 years, and has served as the main banker for many Japanese corporates operating in the country. With the increasing collaboration with Security Bank Corporation, of which MUFG has a 20% stake in, MUFG’s Manila branch has been serving the financial needs of a growing number of Filipino corporates and institutions.
