JP Morgan has today announced a series of sales appointments to drive the strong growth of its treasury services business in Australia and New Zealand. The new hires include the appointment of Jason Clinton as head of financial institution group sales, JP Morgan Treasury Services (TS).
Clinton brings to the TS business deep global and local industry knowledge acquired over an 18-year career that has included roles covering North America, Europe and Asia Pacific. His appointment demonstrates the firm’s ongoing commitment to effectively respond to an increasingly complex client and regulatory landscape.
Based in Sydney, Clinton delivers an extensive set of financial-transaction and banking skills, and will play a critical role in the development and execution of the TS sales strategy for financial institutions and non-bank financial institutions. He will be responsible for building and maintaining relationships with existing and prospective clients. Reporting to Nadia Schiavon, managing director and head of treasury services in Australia and New Zealand, Clinton joins JP Morgan from Barclays in London.
“Jason will bring to the team a proven track record of strong financial-transaction banking experience, enabling us to deliver to our clients a depth of expertise necessary in this current environment,” Schiavon said.
In addition to Clinton, sales-team hires have recently been made for the corporate segment. Matthew Penny has joined the firm as multinational corporation and corporate sales manager for Australia and New Zealand, based in Melbourne. Ari Rubin has been appointed client sales manager, commercial bank, focusing on JP Morgan’s relationships with international commercial banks. Rod O’Connor completes the team as escrow sales-support manager, building out TS’s escrow business. Reporting to head of cash and trade sales, Damian Crowley, who joined the firm in April, these new hires will facilitate client access to JP Morgan’s global suite of integrated banking solutions.
“Our strategic hires understand the need to partner with clients and deliver innovative products to support their rapidly evolving needs. They will work closely with our broader relationship-management and product teams to provide customer-centric solutions to our clients during this period of extensive change,” concluded Schiavon.
