With over 23 years’ experience in the financial services industry, Jessica will lead HSBC’s efforts to build a bigger presence in the Australian retail banking market by assisting domestic and international customers with their mortgages, bank accounts, credit cards and other financial needs.

Jessica joins HSBC from Westpac, where she held several senior retail positions, most recently as State Manager, Metro NSW. Prior to that, she worked for 19 years at Citigroup Australia, holding a number of senior roles across retail products, customer experience, digital banking and marketing.

Commenting on the new appointment, Martin Tricaud, Chief Executive Officer for HSBC Australia said, “Jessica brings to HSBC a very broad and deep knowledge of the Australian financial services sector, and will have direct responsibility for continuing our strong growth trajectory in retail banking.

“Over the past two years, we have deepened our commitment to this market, opening eight new branches, re-launching with mortgage brokers and introducing several innovative new products including our award-winning Everyday Global Account. Under Jessica’s leadership, we have ambitions to grow our market share even further,” he continued.

Jessica will report locally to Martin Tricaud, and on a regional basis to Kevin Martin, Head of Retail Banking and Wealth Management, Asia-Pacific. She replaces Graham Heunis, who has taken on a new role as Head of Asia-Pacific Sales Management, Retail Banking and Wealth Management.
