Wells Fargo Names Amin Regional President for Asia Pacific

Wells Fargo named Jafar Amin regional president for its Asia Pacific (APAC) region, succeeding Jim Johnston who served as interim regional president.

As regional president, Amin will work with other Wells Fargo business leaders to serve commercial, corporate and financial institution customers across APAC. He will also represent the interests of Wells Fargo to regional regulators, government officials, central banks and financial institutions in the Asia Pacific region.

In addition to his role as regional president, Amin was also appointed head of Wells Fargo’s Global Financial Institutions business in APAC, leading a team that manages relationships with financial institutions throughout the region.

Amin relocated to Hong Kong from London, where he most recently served as executive vice president and head of Global Financial Institutions Europe. Before joining Wells Fargo in 2012, Amin was with HSBC for more than 12 years where he held leadership and management positions across various functions, including Financial Institutions, Corporate and Commercial Banking, Public Sector, Global Human Resources and Transaction Banking in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

As head of GFI Asia, Amin succeeds Jim Ho, who was named head of Wells Fargo’s Greater China Business Development and Advisory team. Greater China, including mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, has become an important and evolving market for Wells Fargo and its Wholesale banking customers. Based in Philadelphia, Ho will lead efforts to strengthen and deepen relationships with customers and key stakeholders across the region.
