Citi has named Mark Slaughter as its new head of corporate and investment banking in Asia-Pacific.

The appointment, effective immediately, will see Mr. Slaughter move to Hong Kong from his current role as global chief operating officer for corporate and investment banking in New York.

Mr. Slaughter first joined Citi in 2005 following two decades at Goldman Sachs. He served as chief operating officer of global investment banking from 2005 to 2009, before working in London for two years as chief administrative officer at alternatives investment specialist Investcorp. He returned to Citi in 2011 as head of human capital before moving back into corporate and investment banking last year.

“Mark is one of our most senior leaders and his appointment to this position will allow us to continue our momentum in the region and help deliver to our clients the breadth and depth of Citi’s unparalleled global network,” commented Raymond McGuire, global head of corporate and investment banking.

Mr. Slaughter graduated with a JD from Harvard Law School, and also holds graduate degrees in physics and philosophy. He has served on the board of the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority and advisory boards at Harvard Law School, Cambridge University and London’s SOAS.

Citi in Asia has advised on more than US$85 billion of corporate M&A and helped raise over $150 billion from capital markets for its Asian clients over the last year.
