HSBC hires new commercial banking head for MENAT

Patricia Gomes has been named regional head of commercial banking for the Middle East, North Africa, and Turkey at HSBC (Menat).

Gomes, who is based in Dubai, succeeds Daniel Howlett, who is presently assisting her with the changeover. She comes to Menat from North America, where she served as regional head of global trade and receivables financing most recently.

She has been with HSBC since 2004 and has worked in roles in London, Hong Kong and New York.

In a statement, the bank says that in her new position Gomes will be tasked with “developing HSBC’s international client base and connecting Menat businesses to growth opportunities around the world”.

HSBC is yet to announce Howlett’s next steps.
