Henning joins ING after 28 years at Deutsche Bank. Most recently he was Asia Pacific (APAC) head of multinational corporation coverage (MNC) in Singapore where he was responsible for corporate clients in the Asia Pacific region across 14 countries.
From April 2007 to February 2013, he was head of Corporate Banking Coverage in China, where he was also a member of the Corporate Banking Coverage Executive Committee for Asia.
