He started as a management trainee in Citibank in New York, and has worked a number of roles including business management, financial control, operations, customer service, product management and sales. He has worked in New York, Florida, Chicago, Singapore and Hong Kong.
In 2011, The Asset named Anthony "Transaction Banker of the Year" for a second time, announcing "Nappi could put another feather in his cap as GTS Asia became the number one contributor to Citi's valuable GTS franchise globally," and highlighting that as our industry emerges from the financial crisis, "Citi has stayed the course with Nappi the steady hand at the helm." Anthony was the first-ever recipient of this award in 2008 and is the only individual to have won this prestigious award twice. In 2010, Anthony was co-named AsianInvestor's Custody Banker of the Year, where he was acknowledged for "a vision that not only advances Citi's interests, but is helping the industry at large."

In naming Anthony, the editors said, "Nappi leads the well-oiled machine that is Citi's transaction banking business in Asia ... he has overseen almost a doubling in annual revenue since taking the helm in 2006. That has helped him maintain Citi's place at the forefront of Asian transaction services."
