Markit continues to expand its Asian practice, with a new office opening in Singapore to be run by David Crammond. Crammond joins from ABN Amro, where he was head of structured asset sales for the Asian region. Before then, he was based in ABN’s New York office, running structured credit sales. At Markit, he will be responsible for business development in Asia Pacific (with the exception of Japan). As such, he will spearhead sales aiming to add contributors and subscribers to the Markit pricing and valuation services. Markit opened a Tokyo office last month (see Reference Data Review, May 2005).
