US bank Chase Manhattan has appointed its first manager of

corporate marketing and communications for Europe, Middle East (EMEA)

and Asia/Pacific as it seeks to build its presence outside the US.



John Anderson, currently manager of corporate communications for Chase

Manhattan Global Bank, the company’s non-retail division, has been

promoted to the new post which is the most senior communications

position across its overseas regions.



Anderson, who will move from New York to the UK next month, will report

to Fred Hill, corporate marketing and communications executive at Chase

and oversee a six-strong team in London, New York and Hong Kong. He will

be responsible for reviewing the bank’s communications in EMEA and

Asia/Pacific.



Chase is understood to retain Edelman PR Worldwide in the US, London and

Hong Kong.



Anderson joined Chase in 1993 to manage the Global Bank’s press

office.



He was previously a senior spokesman and speech writer for Bill Rhodes,

vice-chairman, international at Citibank. He will not be replaced in New

York and his responsibilities will be overseen by his fellow Global Bank

corporate communications manager, John Meyers.



Chase Manhattan Corporation operates mainly US-based retail banking

services and a global corporate banking operation. For the second

quarter of 1998, the company reported profits of pounds 675 million, up

11 per cent on the previous quarter.
