Northern Trust taps Kim to lead Asia-Pacific sales
Chicago-based Northern Trust recently hired David Kim to head its Asia-Pacific (APAC) corporate and institutional business, designating the veteran financial professional to supervise sales managers serving regional institutional investors.
Kim will work in Singapore, reporting to Northern Trust’s global sales head Jon Dunham and APAC lead William Mak. His predecessor, Angelo Calvitto, transferred to handle the firm’s Australasia sector.
Kim most recently worked at BNY Mellon in an executive capacity. Bringing over two decades of expertise, he has worked extensively in Asia in financial services.
“We are delighted to appoint David to continue to drive the momentum of Northern Trust’s business across the region,” Mak said. “We continue to see demand from institutional investors and asset managers for our bespoke, leading-edge solutions. David’s invaluable experience will ensure we remain well-positioned to best support our clients’ requirements.”
Kim earned a bachelor’s in finance and investments from Babson College and an MBA from Boston College.
