Clarien Bank Limited has announced the appointment of Ronaldo Veirano as an independent director to its Board of Directors. Mr. Veirano will be responsible for advising on the Bank’s growth and strategic expansion into Latin America.
Mr. Veirano’s appointment constitutes an important Board addition for Clarien Bank as it develops towards its objective of becoming a preeminent, international financial institution offering an expanded range of products and solutions in corporate and investment banking, wealth and asset management to clients globally.
In his role as the founding partner of Veirano Advogados, in Brazil, Mr. Veirano brings a unique perspective on private wealth and institutional banking opportunities currently present in Latin America.
Mr. Veirano is also a key leader in the promotion of Brazil’s global business development and currently a member of the executive committee of both the Brazil-China Business Council and the United States Business Council.
Mr. Veirano joins three presiding board members, Buford Alexander, Michael Quinn and Gregory Slayton. They add to the long standing management team of local Board Directors, James Macdonald, James Gibbons, Hal Masters and Andrew Parsons. Keith Stock also remains Chairman of the Board representing Clarien Group Limited.
Keith Stock, Chairman of Clarien Bank Limited, said: “With Edmund Gibbons Limited as one of Clarien’s shareholders, the reappointment of James Gibbons to Co-CEO demonstrates the continued commitment to Bermuda by the Gibbons family and indeed to Clarien Bank. I look forward to James’s stewardship as Co-CEO, as he and Ian drive progress and further strengthen the Bank’s relationship with our local, and global community. Mr. Veirano’s highly regarded legal and business expertise will be a huge asset to Clarien and its Board of Directors. Specifically, his specialist knowledge of the Latin American market and his long standing relationships with organizations present in the region will be essential in driving forward strategic growth in the Bank’s private wealth and institutional banking divisions.”
Mr. Veirano commented: “Clarien Bank is clearly at a very exciting stage in its international growth. With years of experience working with institutional banking and private wealth professionals, I look forward to the opportunities that my position with the Bank’s Board of Directors will help develop, most notably in Latin America. “Over the last two decades there has been a positive change in the LatAm market. The rapid rise of entrepreneurs and ultra-high net worth individuals has resulted in a greater demand for sophisticated wealth management, corporate banking and investment services. Brazil alone presents a particularly strong opportunity. Not only will it be the world’s fourth largest economy by 2030, but at present there are more than 200 high net worth individual’s worth over $500 million dollars residing there.”
In 2008 Mr. Veirano was recognized by the government of Brazil and awarded the prestigious Order of Rio Branco, in acknowledgement of his significant contribution to the promotion of Brazil’s relations with the world.
