Credit Suisse director and head of legal Sapna Bhawnani has been promoted to head of legal for South Asia.

We had reported on 23 December 2019 that she had told Credit Suisse that she would be leaving the bank to join private equity fund KKR in early 2020, in a legal and compliance role.

However, Credit Suisse is understood to have managed to retain Bhawnani, while also promoting her to a position with a wider remit, according to her Linked-in profile.

According to her Linked-in profile update she will “supervise and coordinate General Counsel activities and act as a legal and strategic advisor for Australia, India, Southeast Asia and Southeast Asia Frontier Markets”.

She has confirmed her new designation and that she was remaining at Credit Suisse but declined to comment further after we reached out to her.

Bhawnani is reporting to the general counsel, Asia Pacific region.
