BoA snares Taishin's CRO as its new Taiwan chief

Lin said he is excited to be joining an international bank such as BoA with a track record in Taiwan. “The bank has been involved in bringing some large and complicated deals to market and has won awards for its treasury services,” he said. “I thoroughly look forward to using my experience to lead this excellent team to more successes.”

Lin, who started with BoA on July 3, reports to Frederick Chin, managing director and chief executive of Greater China. “We are delighted to have James join our Asian management team,” said Chin. “James brings with him more than 26 years of experience in banking with multinational companies, combined with a strong appreciation of the needs of our clients in Taiwan.”

While at Taishin, Lin worked on the bank’s Basel II compliance and treasury operations centralisation and control. He received the chief risk officer of the year award in 2005 from RiskNews’ sister publication, Asia Risk. Before joining Taishin, Lin – who is Taiwanese – served as general manager at the Union Bank of California’s Taipei branch. He has also held positions at JP Morgan Chase, China Securities Investment Consulting and Seattle First Bank, which is now Bank of America.
