He has a remit to grow the businesses, which provide a broad range of banking, lending, currency and investment services to local and international expatriate customers.
Mr Goddard moves to Jersey having worked in a number of international markets including Dubai, Hong Kong, mainland China, Poland and Korea and has undertaken a broad range of roles across consumer finance, insurance and sales and distribution.
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Goddard said: “HSBC has seen strong growth in Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man and in its international HSBC Expat service in recent years. I’m delighted to be able to join such a talented and hard-working team as we continue that positive journey. We are absolutely committed to supporting the banking needs of residents in all three islands and we have some exciting plans to enhance our service for local people.
“It’s also a pleasure to have the opportunity to move with my family to such a beautiful and community-spirited location, and I’m really looking forward to playing a central role in cementing the Bank’s links with the local communities in all three islands.”
Tracy Garrad, Chief Executive Officer, HSBC Channel Islands and Isle of Man, added: “We are now in a position where the islands make an important contribution towards the overall success of HSBC globally and we see further significant opportunities here.
