Susan Chan, a Hong Kong-based managing director with BlackRock, was appointed head of iShares Asia-Pacific.
She replaces Jane Leung, who will relocate to New York to take up a “senior role in the business,” according to a statement from the company. Anthony Arthur, a Hong Kong-based spokesman for BlackRock, said details on Ms. Leung’s new role haven’t been disclosed yet.
Ms. Chan previously served as head of Asia-Pacific iShares Capital Markets. She will continue to oversee iShares Capital Markets until a replacement is named.
The BlackRock statement said Ms. Leung will remain in Hong Kong for a few months to ensure a smooth transition.
