Wells Fargo & Company has named Jafar Amin as the new regional president for its Asia Pacific (APAC) region, replacing interim regional president Jim Johnston.

Based in Hong Kong, Amin will work with the firm’s other business leaders to meet the needs of commercial, corporate and financial institution customers across the APAC region.

Amin will also be responsible for representing the firm’s interests to regional regulators, government officials, central banks, and financial institutions across APAC.  He will report to Wells Fargo wholesale banking business COO Richard Yorke.

Apart from APAC president, Amin was also named as head of Wells Fargo global financial institutions (GFI) business in APAC, replacing Jim Ho who is now appointed as head of Wells Fargo Greater China business development and advisory team.

In this role, Amin will be responsible for heading a team that manages relationships with the region’s financial institutions. Meanwhile, Ho will be based in Philadelphia, with responsibility for leading efforts to improve relationships with the region’s customers and key stakeholders.

Amin joined Wells Fargo in 2012, and most recently was the executive vice president and head of Global Financial Institutions (GFI) Europe.
