Davies, Senior Executive Vice President and Head of Commercial Banking for HSBC - North America. "We have found that 70 percent of California-based mid-to-large size international businesses anticipate increased international revenues in the coming years and HSBC is ready to support their international ambitions. Hence, it is essential to have experienced individuals such as James and his San Francisco team on the ground. They have in-depth knowledge of what companies need to do when expanding or operating their business overseas to ensure we are meeting their multi-country banking needs."
