Broadridge expands APAC leadership team

Broadridge has expanded its executive team in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region in a bid to improve client relationships and to support its client base in the region.

David Becker joins as head of Asia Pacific, while Yoshiyuki Hoshino is the new COO for Japan.

According to Broadridge, the new hires come as a response to increasing demand for technology and communications solutions from corporations, banks, broker-dealers and asset managers in APAC.

Bolstering the APAC operations is also intended to help clients improve operations, meet local regulatory requirements, and better prepare for future growth.

Based in Singapore, Becker will be responsible for overseeing Broadridge’s operations in APAC. He will focus on strategic growth and client solutions, and will manage the business and teams across the region.

He will report to Tom Carey, president of global technology and operations.

Previously, Becker worked for Thomson Reuters, where he held several positions including managing director for Asia and head of global accounts for Asia.

Hoshino will be based in Tokyo and will report to Becker. He is charged with working with clients to develop, customise and implement Broadridge solutions in accordance with the fast-changing regulatory environment in Japan.

He has previously held positions as head of operations at the likes of Barclays, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Securities and Merrill Lynch, and was also previously director of the board for the Japan Securities Clearing Corporation (JSCC).
