Feb. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Standard Chartered Plc, the U.K. bank that earns most of its profit in Asia, named Tom Emmet head of mergers and acquisitions in the Middle East and North Africa.

Emmet will be based in the Dubai International Financial Center and joined the bank from Royal Bank of Scotland, where he was head of corporate finance and equity capital markets for the Middle East and Africa, Standard Chartered said today in an e-mailed statement. He previously worked for ABN Amro Bank NV’s Europe, Middle East and Africa investment banking team.

Emmet replaces Apoorva Shah, who left the bank, and will report to Andrew Suckling, global head of mergers and acquisitions, and Daniel Azzi, regional head of global markets and co-head of wholesale banking for the Middle East, North Africa and Pakistan.

“The Middle East is one of Standard Chartered’s strategic markets and we continue to work closely with our clients to support their increasing mergers and acquisitions ambitions,” Suckling said.
