The Dutch pension asset manager's Asia Pacific head of real estate says his team has just had one of its busiest years ever and that 2021 is looking similarly promising.
In total he brings 23 years of experience in the banking industry, which has included a focus on structured finance and project financing. He has also been involved in several high profile transactions in the Philippines, with a particular emphasis in the telecommunications space.
To his new position at ABN, he will split his reporting line to Jeroen Drost, chief executive of Asia, Richard Orders, vice-chairman for Asia and David Wong, regional country executive for South Asia.
He replaces former country executive Iggy Kilayko, who ABN has appointed as deputy chairman to its Philippines board of directors. Kilayko will continue to work closely with Goquingco and will refocus his energies on supporting its international clients with operations in the country.
At the present time, no replacement has been announced for GoquinqcoÆs previous role.
