Doug Baikie moves into the role to replace John Rendall, who is moving to a senior role in Poland
HSBC has named Doug Baikie as its new interim chief executive in Scotland.
He takes up the role from John Rendall, who is moving on to a chief executive position for HSBC in Poland.
Baikie, who for the last two years has led the bank’s corporate banking division in Scotland, joined HSBC in 1999 and has held a variety of senior roles based in Scotland, the Midlands and London.
The chief executive post, to which Rendall was appointed more than three years ago, will remain in Scotland and a new chief executive will be appointed “in due course”, HSBC said.
Joe Garner, head of HSBC in the UK, said: “We are totally committed to our customers in Scotland and we are delighted to have Doug Baikie in place as interim CEO whilst we seek a permanent replacement.
“Scotland remains a growth country for HSBC and John Rendall has made a tremendous contribution since he joined the business in Scotland over three years ago. We’d like to thank him and wish him well in his new role.”
