City of London Corporation’s Special Adviser for Asia Departs

The City of London Corporation’s Special Adviser for Asia, Sherry Madera, is to step down after two years with the organisation.

The role saw Ms Madera visit cities across Asia to help the City strengthen its relationship with the region.

Ms Madera will be leaving next month to start a role at Refinitiv, having joined the City of London Corporation in January 2017.

Policy Chair of the City of London Corporation, Catherine McGuinness, said:

“Over the last two years, Sherry has been at the forefront of driving forward the City Corporation’s engagement with Asia.“At a crucial juncture for the UK’s position on the global stage, Sherry has worked tirelessly to improve relations between the City of London and some the fastest growing economies in the world.“I would like to thank Sherry warmly for her work and insight, and wish her all the best in her future endeavours.”

Special Adviser for Asia Sherry Madera said:

“Since being asked to lead the City Corporation’s engagement with Asia, it has been a privilege to work with firms across the City of London to strengthen their ties with some of the most exciting economies in the world.

“London is a global financial centre and Asia continues to grow its share of the world’s financial future. Never before has it been more important for the UK to understand the opportunities and challenges in Asia and how this impacts global business. I hope my contributions have helped futureproof the City’s position as a leading international financial centre.

“Based on my frequent engagements in markets such as China, India and Singapore, I am confident the City will remain a leading financial hub after Brexit, and look forward to seeing its global links go from strength-to-strength in the years to come.”
