EVP, Head of International Business U.S., HSBC Bank USA
A commercial banker with deep experience covering the apparel, jewelry and retail sectors, Diane D'Erasmo took on a new role at HSBC last October, overseeing the flow of foreign business into the company's U.S. subsidiary.
She's been establishing international relationship managers in key regions and advises clients on doing business in the United States, all of which is part of HSBC's strategy to dominate global trade finance and grow its relationships with international business customers.
D'Erasmo joined HSBC predecessor institution Republic National Bank in 1980. She was a founding member of HSBC's Women's Network and was the group's executive sponsor until 2009.
Her fundraising and community work now includes board service at Junior Achivement of New York City, the Fashion Institute of Technology Education Foundation and Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City, and she co-chairs the executive leaders committee of the Financial Women's Association.
