The OBG says that in her new role, Meroño will oversee a broad range of projects in the many markets that the organisation covers across the region.
Meroño previously spent almost three years in Indonesia and other countries in the ASEAN bloc, where the OBG says she played a pivotal part in helping the firm to expand its operations there.
"Since joining OBG 12 years ago, Meroño has built up a wealth of experience in emerging markets, having worked across Asia, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas. Most recently she held the position of regional director of the Americas where she ensured OBG cemented its position in countries such as Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Trinidad and Tobago, while extending its reach into new markets that included Argentina," the OBG said.
Meroño said she was thrilled to be returning to Asia. "Investor confidence remains high in many of the region's markets, despite external pressures, buoyed by the expectation of high returns," she said.
"I look forward to meeting the people that are driving the transformation of this exciting region and ensuring that the many investment opportunities emerging across the markets we cover reach a global audience."
