Sandy Isherwood has joined the Credit Suisse Australia's equities sales desk as a director responsible for large-cap domestic funds coverage.

Isherwood joins from Goldman Sachs where he was an executive director specialising in resources and energy.

Sam Speer also joins Credit Suisse as vice president, head of small-cap sales.

"We are very pleased to have outstanding talent join the Credit Suisse team, as we continue to partner and provide top tier solutions for clients in Australia and offshore," said Mark Davis, head of equities Australia.

Meantime, the Swiss banking giant has appointed Min Huang to lead its asset management business in the region.

Huang will retain her existing responsibilities as head of asset management for China.

The promotion comes seven months after Huang was named acting head for the APAC asset management business last November.

In the new role, Huang will lead the regional businesses, drive the regional implementation of the cross-functional AM strategy with a clear focus on further strengthening the firm's market presence, and develop cross-divisional collaboration in the APAC region.

Huang joined the Swiss bank giant in 2006 and held various leadership roles in investment bank and asset management functions.

Since 2014, she has run asset management for China.

Huang will report to Credit Suisse Asset Management chief Ulrich Körner who said Asia Pacific is a key growth region for the business.

"I am convinced that Min's significant industry experience and proven leadership, together with her in-depth knowledge of the region, make her ideally placed suited to drive our efforts to grow our asset management business in APAC," he said.

Huang will be a member of the global asset management and APAC management committees.
