People Moves - Former HSBC Greater China CEO Helen Wong to join OCBC


OCBC has appointed former HSBC Greater China chief Helen Wong as deputy president and head of global wholesale banking.

The appointment takes effect from Feb 3, 2020.

Ms Wong brings to OCBC 35 years of banking experience, including 27 years at HSBC. She was appointed group general manager of HSBC Group in 2011 and her last position was chief executive of HSBC Greater China, based in Hong Kong. She had held various senior management positions in corporate and investment banking at HSBC, including president and chief executive of HSBC China and head of global banking (Hong Kong).

In her new role at OCBC, Ms Wong will undertake global responsibilities for all banking relationships with small- and medium-sized enterprises, large corporates and financial institutions, two product groups - cash management and trade under the transaction banking business, as well as the investment banking business, said OCBC in a statement on Wednesday.

"Helen is widely regarded as a top female banker in Hong Kong with deep Greater China experience and extensive market knowledge. Given her breadth of experience and exposure, we are delighted to have Helen join our senior management team," said OCBC group chief executive Samuel Tsien.
