A new chief Executive Officer for Standard Chartered Bank has arrived in the Falklands to take over from Binoy Karia, who is to move to the bank’s New York office. Mr Karia will be a Business Planning Manager for the Regional Head, Corporate and Industrial Clients, Americas.
Stuart Horsewood, a keen runner, has spent 45 years with Standard Chartered Bank across 20 countries, mainly in Asia and the Middle East. In the past he has been running well over a hundred marathons. His love of fitness began at the age of 13. At the age of 16 he had already participated in the John F Kennedy 50-mile memorial run in his home country of Lincolnshire, England. At present, Horsewood currently runs around 5 marathons a year. He hits his personal best of three and a half hours twice in 1998. Once, he raised 75,000 USD for the Standard Chartered’s charitable initiative ‘Seeing is Believing’, by running 9 marathons in 9 months.
Mr Horsewood’s wife, Peggy, will arrive in the Falklands later this year.
