MasterCard today announced the appointment of two Co-Presidents for the Asia/Pacific region – Ling Hai and Ari Sarker; as well the creation of two sub-regions – North East Asia and Australasia (NEAA) and South East Asia and South Asia (SEASA).

The new sub-regions are in recognition of the growing importance of Asia/Pacific as a whole as it houses two of the region’s biggest markets - China and India - and reflects a more focused approach for these diverse markets.

Both Ling Hai and Ari will be based in Singapore, and together they will be taking over from Vicky Bindra, President, Asia/Pacific, who will be leaving the company.

Commenting on the appointments, Ann Cairns, President, International Markets, MasterCard said: “We see enormous potential for the Asia/Pacific region and with this new regional reorganization we intend to further build on our already strong business momentum across the overall geography. Both Ling Hai and Ari have a strong and successful track record in MasterCard and we look forward to them leading the next wave of growth for us.

“We would also like to acknowledge and thank Vicky for his contribution to the growth of the Asia/Pacific, Middle East & Africa markets in MasterCard over the last six years, and we wish him the best in his future endeavors,” Cairns added.
