Credit Lyonnais has hired Henry Chong, derivatives marketer for Korea at Banque AIG in Tokyo, for a similar role in Seoul covering Korean corporates. "I wanted to be closer to the market," said Chong, a native of Seoul. He now reports to Bruno Lebeda, treasurer in Seoul. "This is part of our strategy to leverage trading and further develop the sales desk," said Lebeda.
At AIG, Chong reported to Nigel Pentland, ceo in Tokyo. Pentland did not return calls.
