Merrill Corporation (www.merrillcorp.com), a global provider of secure content sharing, regulated communications and disclosure services, announced that Spencer Chiu has joined the company as Chief Revenue Officer for Asia Pacific. Chiu assumes the role from Dan Hostetter, who served as Head of Sales for the APAC region for the last seven years and who returns to the United States following his promotion as Global Head of Strategic Advisor Accounts. Chiu starts immediately, and will co-report to Nancy Yu, Managing Director for Asia Pacific; and Todd Albright, Global Chief Revenue Officer for Merrill Corporation.
“I’m delighted to welcome Spencer to our exceptional team in Hong Kong,” said Nancy Yu. “Spencer joins Merrill at an incredibly exciting time for our business around the world, particularly in Asia where we continue to invest in our technology and infrastructure. A tangible example of that investment is the recent launch of our new data centre in Hong Kong. Our team in Hong Kong looks forward to working with Spencer as we continue to grow in the region.”
Prior to joining Merrill Corporation, Chiu was Managing Director and a founder of Alpha Financial Press, one of the most recognized brands in the financial transaction industry since 2014. Before forming Alpha Financial Press, Chiu spent 10 years at Toppan Vite, the financial transaction and business communications arm of Toppan Printing Group. While at Toppan Vite, he was pivotal in introducing Virtual Data Room services to the Asia market. Spencer holds a B.Sc. in Finance from Boston College and an MBA from the University of Hong Kong.
“Spencer’s appointment is another important part of Merrill’s global expansion strategy, particularly in the Asia Pacific market,” said Albright, Merrill’s worldwide Chief Revenue Officer. “With strong long-term presence in Hong Kong and Singapore and the recent opening of our Tokyo branch in partnership with Takara, we are poised across sales, marketing and our localized service offerings to increase support for our clients and capture new growth in the region. Spencer brings Merrill a strong combination of sales experience and client insights to help lead our efforts.”
