DBS Group Holdings announced several senior-level organizational appointments that will take effect over the course of the next few months. Shee Tse Koon, presently DBS’ Group Head of Strategy and Planning, will take over as Singapore Country Head from 1 December 2018. Sim S. Lim, presently DBS’ Singapore Country Head, will succeed Tan Su Shan as Group Head of Consumer Banking (CBG) and Wealth Management from 1 January 2019. Tan Su Shan, presently Group Head of Consumer Banking & Wealth Management, will succeed Jeanette Wong as Group Head of Institutional Banking (IBG) from 1 February 2019. This is to allow for a smooth transition ahead of Wong’s plans to retire on 1 March 2019.
Wong served as Chief Financial Officer from 2003 to 2008. In 2008, she moved on to her current role as Group Head of IBG. Tan joined DBS in June 2010 as Group Head of Wealth Management, before taking on an expanded portfolio which also comprised oversight of Consumer Banking. In her new role, some of her focus areas will include strengthening CBG, Private Banking & IBG connectivity, enabling DBS to further solidify its “one-bank” customer proposition. She will also continue to drive IBG’s digital agenda and focus in customer experience.
Lim joined DBS in September 2010 as Country Head, DBS Singapore, a then newly-created role. Over the years, he has built a country management team and process for Singapore and helped provide direction for DBS Vickers, as well as the bank’s operations in Japan and Thailand.
Shee brings with him almost 25 years of banking experience, and including 22 years at Standard Chartered Bank, which spanned front and back office roles, and included stints in Asia, the Middle East and Europe.
