Hemingway will leave the bank in the new year, explaining that the role will disappear upon his departure.

Hemingway joined the bank in the summer of 2008 with responsibility for UK personal finance media relations, following 26 years heading up the press office at Halifax/HBOS.

Hemingway said: ‘I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with HSBC building what is widely recognised as a world class press team.

‘With the re-organisation of the communications function I feel that now is the right time to look for a new challenge, whatever that may be.’

Hemingway is set to take a short break before seeking a new role in the industry.

The HSBC comms division has been restructured on a global basis over the past year. The UK comms unit is now part of European comms, led by regional head of comms, Europe Andy Berry who joined this year.
