The article features Mike Smith, of Australia's ANZ. Smith revealed that his first six months of leading ANZ taught him a key difference between Australian bank customers and those in Hong Kong, China, where he previously worked. Smith sees his two biggest achievements at HSBC as managing the 1999-2002 economic crisis in Argentina and revamping the bank's Asian operations. In ANZ, Smith sees a chance to replicate his achievements at HSBC.
