NEW YORK and TAIPEI, April 6, 2011 – Boyden, a global leader in executive search, today released a new instalment of the Boyden Leadership Series featuring an in-depth interview with Michael DeNoma, Chinatrust Commercial Bank’s President and CEO.

The interview highlights Mr. DeNoma’s views on building a global bank, China’s position as a juggernaut, his speeches in Mandarin, why the U.S. is not actually falling behind and how a blind African marathoner inspired him to become an Ironman triathlete.

“Mike defines dynamic leadership in all the key categories, including bringing a true global perspective, building  a new company direction and moving an entire organization to enthusiastically adopt a mission,” said Trina Gordon, Chairman and CEO of Boyden World Corporation.

“Mike is incredibly effective as a leader, by inspiring by example,” said William Farrell, Managing Partner of Boyden Taipei. “His experience in Asia, Africa and Europe brings great perspective and creativity in managing Chinatrust’s 10,000 employees. Most important, his vision, values and management system are already bringing impressive results.”

Prior to joining Chinatrust in 2009, Mr. DeNoma served as CEO of the Global Consumer Bank, Vice Chairman of Asia and a Main Board Director at Standard Chartered. Prior to Standard Chartered, he was the Founder and CEO of two nationwide companies in China. Mr. DeNoma previously held senior executive positions with Hutchinson Whampoa, Citibank and PepsiCo. He started his career at Procter & Gamble.
