“The treasury and finance profession is rapidly transforming, and nowhere more so than in Asia,” said Soriano. “Whether treasury and finance professionals are interested in transitioning from accounting to financial planning and analysis, improving their regional treasury centre, or learning new forecasting techniques, AFP has a training solution that meets their needs. Opening an office in Singapore will help us better serve the profession in this region.”

Soriano holds an MBA from Johns Hopkins University and has worked at AFP for more than 14 years in a variety of roles. As AFP’s Regional Director, APAC, Soriano will oversee operations, build customer relationships and develop partnerships within the region. Soriano also will hire and lead a team of sales, services and support staff.

“Asia is experiencing a paradigm shift in treasury and finance, and AFP is going to be a part of that evolution,” said Jim Kaitz, president and chief executive officer of AFP. “As organizations seek to upskill their finance departments, they can look to AFP’s dual certifications to help them achieve that goal. And our new office in Singapore will give APAC financial professionals the opportunity to see firsthand how AFP can help them on their road to success.”
