Sir John Reginald Hartnell Bond (traditional Chinese: 龐約翰, born 24 July 1940) retired as chairman of HSBC Holdings plc on 26 May 2006, after spending 45 years with the bank. He took up the position of Chairman of Vodafone in July 2006.

He was appointed as a member of the Hong Kong Chief Executive's Council of International Advisers in the years of 1998-2005 .

John Bond joined The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation as an International manager in 1961, at the age of 19, his original application having been turned down before the intervention of the father of an old school friend whose father was a broker for the bank. He spent his early career in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand and the Middle East, before returning to Hong Kong to manage the bank's investment banking arm Wardley in the 1980s. From there, he was posted to Buffalo, New York, to head the bank's United States operations (at that time called Marine Midland Bank), before being appointed HSBC Group CEO in 1993. Bond took over as Group Chairman in 1998 with the retirement of Sir William Purves.
