Anna Marrs, regional chief executive officer of Standard Chartered Bank for Asean and South Asia, has arrived in Dhaka for an official visit.
During the visit, she will meet with some of the bank's key stakeholders, regulators and clients, the bank said in a statement.
Her visit comes following recent changes in the bank's senior management, with Naser Ezaz Bijoy being appointed as the CEO of Standard Chartered Bangladesh.
Bijoy replaced Abrar A Anwar, who took charge of the bank's operations in Malaysia.
“Anna's visit reiterates the Group's strong commitment to drive commerce and prosperity in Bangladesh and aid the development of the nation's financial sector,” said Bijoy in the statement.
“As the oldest financial institution in the country, with a heritage of over 112 years and deep local knowledge, we remain firmly committed to being a partner in progress to our nation.”
Marrs is also the CEO of Standard Chartered's commercial and private banking business globally.
She joined Standard Chartered as group head of strategy and corporate development in January 2012. In her role as the head of strategy, Marrs led reviews of the bank's businesses globally, with notable projects focusing on Nigeria, China and India.
Prior to joining Standard Chartered, Marrs was a partner in McKinsey & Company's banking practice. She started her career at DE Shaw, a New York-based investment firm.
Marrs holds an MBA from London Business School and an undergraduate degree from Northwestern University in Chicago.
