Sunil Sreenivasan, Chief country officer, Citibank Singapore
"Just ask Sunil about his record collection," was the advice of a Hong Kong-based Citibanker, "you won't be disappointed." Sure enough, this question draws an enthusiastic response. "I think I have more CDs than certain record shops in Kuala Lumpur," laughs Sunil Sreenivasan.
Sreenivasan's 5,000 compact discs and 3,000 long-playing records are still housed in Kuala Lumpur, where until recently he was Citibank Malaysia's chief country officer.
An original recording of the complete works of María Callas - a personal favourite - sit alongside Brazilian folk music and the jazz of Jimmy Smith, in a custom-built room that contains four stereo systems.
But the Indian banker doesn't just listen to music, he plays it. "I am not a great guitarist," says Sreenivasan, "not yet - but I am deeply resolved to become one. Right now I could play a 30-minute concert. My mother-in-law says I am OK, and she's pretty hard to please."
He's resolved to master flamenco guitar, and is tutored for three hours a week by classical concert guitarist Daniel Chan. At one stage he even grew the fingernails on his right hand, but this got in the way of the business handshake and so the long nails were shorn.
