Sandy will also retain his positions as Chairman of HSBC Bank plc, the Group's principal UK and European subsidiary, as Chairman of HSBC Latin America Holdings (UK) Limited and as a Director of HSBC Bank Middle East Ltd.

As Sandy Flockhart is not independent, his appointment as a non-executive Director of HSBC Holdings plc will be for an initial period of one year to the conclusion of the 2013 Annual General Meeting, and is subject to his re-election by shareholders, the company said.
