Barry O’Byrne

Chief Executive Officer Global Commercial Banking

About Barry O’Byrne

I joined HSBC in 2017 and now serve as Chief Executive of Global Commercial Banking. In this role I lead a diverse team of colleagues who serve 1.3 million business customers in 53 countries and territories, ranging from small enterprises focused on their home market to large international companies. Together we help entrepreneurial businesses grow by meeting their financial needs, by facilitating cross-border trade and payments, and by connecting them to opportunities through our global network.

My goal is to build the commercial bank of tomorrow by investing in our digital transformation, empowering our people and collaborating with our customers to achieve a more sustainable future for all. This journey started for me in my last role, when I led strategic change initiatives for HSBC Commercial Banking as Chief Operating Officer.

Prior to HSBC I spent 19 years with GE Capital, where I held CEO positions in Italy, France and the UK and served on boards in the UK, Switzerland, Germany, Italy and Spain. I’m comfortable working in English and French, but my Italian now needs improvement.

My life and career started in Ireland, where I gained a degree in Business Studies and French from the University of Limerick. Today my home is in London, where I’m a husband and a father to three wonderful daughters.
