Standard Chartered, the emerging markets bank, has appointed Paul

Marriage to the newly-created role of regional head of external affairs

for the bank’s UK, Europe and Africa regions, based in London.



Marriage, who takes up the post at the end of September, is currently

head of external affairs for Northeast Asia, a brief which covers Hong

Kong, China, Japan and Korea. He is currently working out a four-week

handover to his replacement.



The London-based role has been created to strengthen investor relations

in its most important investor market - the UK, said Marriage, who

reports to the global head of external affairs, Pam McGann.



Standard Chartered’s UK office is mainly concerned with fundraising

activities for its listing on the London Stock Exchange.



Marriage joined the bank from public affairs agency Forrest

International in 1998 (PR Week, 15 May 1998), after working as financial

editor of Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post newspaper.



He is replaced by former Forrest colleague Rosemary Sayer, who is

currently deputy MD of Golin/Harris Forrest.



She joins after more than three years at Forrest where she worked on

corporate and investor relations campaigns for Hopewell Holdings,

Jardine Matheson, Hong Kong Electric and the South China Morning Post.
