Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (NYSE:BR) has appointed two senior leaders to its executive team in Asia Pacific.
David Becker has joined as Head of Asia Pacific and Yoshiyuki Hoshino has joined as chief operating officer of Japan.
The appointments are in response to increasing demand from banks, brokers, asset managers and corporations in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region for technology and communications solutions to transform their operations, meet local regulatory requirements as well as position them for future growth globally.
Becker will oversee all of Broadridge’s operations in APAC, with a focus on strategic business growth and client solutions. Based in Singapore, he will manage the business and teams across the region and will report to Tom Carey, president, Global Technology and Operations International.
Becker has a 32-year track record of success in business development across diverse financial services institutions. Before joining Broadridge, he held senior management positions at a number of firms, mostly recently as managing director at Thomson Reuters in Asia. He has extensive experience managing scalable business operations across Asia, building long-term relationships with financial institutions and leading strategic acquisition and merger projects.
As COO of Japan, Hoshino will be responsible for working closely with clients to develop, customise and implement Broadridge solutions in accordance with the rapidly-evolving regulatory landscape in Japan. Hoshino is an industry veteran with more than 30 years of banking operations experience, having held head of operations roles at a number of prominent investment banks including Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Securities, Merrill Lynch and most recently, Barclays. He is a co-chair for the OMGEO Asia Pacific Advisory Counsel, and previously served as director of the board for the Japan Securities Clearing Corporation (JSCC). He is based in Tokyo and reports to Becker.
“David and Hoshino bring a wealth of financial services experience in the region, strong long-term relationships and deep local industry knowledge. These appointments will help to strengthen client relationships, broaden our solution offerings, lead our growth strategy and support our expanding APAC footprint.”
