Sionic announces addition of two new partners

Charles Bokman and Manoj Rane have been announced to have partnered with Sionic, the rebranded company which was formed upon the merge of US-based consultancy Sionic Advisors and the UK financial services specialist Catalyst Development.

Bokman and Rane will both retain their Asian location and have joined Sionic as part of the firm’s drive to add a greater number of global partners, according to a report by Consultancy Asia.

Charles Bokman has joined Sionic’s Wealth Management & Private Banking Practice, which is based out of Singapore, with Singapore being the primary outlet in Asia for Sionic. Bokman has gained experience working for PwC as a director and spent a year as Accenture’s Head of Management Consulting for ASEAN, before joining Synechron.

Manoj Rane has been made a partner of Sionic’s Group Risk & Capital Practice, based out of Mumbai. He will be the head of Sionic’s India team. Prior to joining Sionic, Rane was with BNP Paribas for 15 years, where he was the Head of Global Markets in India. He has also held senior roles in Bank of America, Standard Chartered, and IndusInd Bank.

Craig Sher, the CEO of Sionic, has said “We only hire the best in the business, and I am delighted to welcome (our new hires) as (some of) financial services’ finest. I also look forward to announcing more new arrivals and new bases in the US, Europe and Asia shortly.”
