"George Hindmarsh has a record of creating innovative solutions, developing new markets and closing landmark mandates, and we are pleased to welcome him as sales leader for the Asia-Pacific region," Parker said. "In recent years, Northern Trust has experienced substantial growth in Asia-Pacific, in terms of assets and new clients, as well as the staff, products and capabilities to provide the level of service required by sophisticated investors in the region. Under George's leadership, I am confident that our business development efforts will continue to be very successful and our strategic relationships in the region will be strengthened."
Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing global region for Northern Trust, in terms of assets under custody, with an annual growth rate of 9 percent from 2007 through 2011.
