Based in New York, Mr Goodwin will report to Farhan Faruqui, Group Executive International. He is expected to commence his new role upon regulatory approval.
Mr Goodwin has been with ANZ for 16 years, and is currently the Managing Director, Institutional for New Zealand. Before joining ANZ, he held senior corporate finance roles at Credit Suisse in the UK and the National Bank of New Zealand.
Farhan Faruqui, Group Executive International said: “Under Paul’s leadership our New Zealand Institutional business has consolidated a leading market position, topping league tables across nearly all products.
“I am confident his strong leadership and deep experience managing complex customer relationships will be a great contributor to the strength of our US business,” Mr Faruqui said.
“The US is an important market in ANZ’s global network and remains key to our strategy of facilitating trade and capital flows across our home markets and Asia Pacific.”
ANZ has had a presence in the US for more than 50 years, and during that time has built a strong client base and a leading market share of the US corporate market in Australia.
Mr Goodwin replaces Grant Knuckey, who recently took on the role of Chief Risk Officer for ANZ New Zealand and Pacific.
The process of replacing Mr Goodwin in New Zealand is currently underway and an announcement will be made in due course, following local regulatory approval.
