DBS Bank has appointed Pearlyn Phau (pictured) as deputy group head of consumer banking & wealth management.
Her role starts effective 1 January 2016.
Phau will relocate to Singapore and will report to Tan Su Shan, group head of consumer banking & wealth management.
Phau is currently managing director and head of consumer banking group and wealth management at DBS Bank Hong Kong where she oversees the consumer banking and private banking businesses in Hong Kong.
She has been with DBS since 2003 and has assumed various leadership roles within the bank, including head of DBS iBanking and regional head of DBS Treasures. Her new appointment underscores DBS’ commitment to internal mobility and talent development.
“Phau has consistently performed at a high level and is a real asset to the bank. In fact, she gamely took on the role of DBS Hong Kong’s consumer banking head in 2012 and under her leadership, our consumer banking and wealth franchise has performed well,” Tan said.
Her successor in Hong Kong will be announced in due course, the bank said.
