Sam Hewson is succeeding Bernie Sinniah as Global Head of eFX at Citi. One of the veteran eFX industry leaders in global banking is retiring from his position, a memo sent to staff at Citigroup says. The document outlines that after 38 years with the US bank, Mr Sinniah is retiring from his position.
Sam Hewson has been with Citi since 2003, with his most recent position including a vast set of responsibilities. As a Managing Director in FX corporate sales at Citi he was Global Head of FX Risk Management Solutions & Co-Head and Western Europe Head of Corporate FX Sales.
The internal memo sent to staff said that Mr Hewson will focus on the implementation of the electronic FX offering of Citi. The product is designed to assist corporate and public sector clients of the bank as Citi takes a step to improve its offering of treasury and trade solutions.
According to the memo, Hewson will continue leading the risk management solutions team until a suitable successor is found.
Mr Sinniah has been with Citi for almost four decades, starting his career as a Spot FX trader in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
