HSBC names John Flint as next CEO

HSBC has appointed John Flint as its next chief executive the bank said on Thursday, sticking with a tradition of promoting company insiders to run the firm.

Flint, who currently runs HSBC's retail and wealth management business, will start in his new role on Feb 21 2018, taking over from current chief executive Stuart Gulliver, who is retiring after seven years in the job.

The appointment marks the first major decision taken by the bank's new chairman, former AIA Group chief Mark Tucker, who joined HSBC on Oct. 1 as its first ever externally-appointed chairman.

Flint, no relation to outgoing chairman Douglas Flint, is viewed by other executives inside HSBC as a safe pair of hands, having been at the bank since 1989.
