KUALA LUMPUR: Maybank Group today announced two new senior appointments.

The first is the appointment of Dr John Lee Hin Hock as the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Maybank Singapore, effective 1st December 2017.

Lee will take over from Datuk Lim Hong Tat, the current CEO of Maybank Singapore and Group Head of Maybank’s Community Financial Services (CFS) who will be returning to Malaysia to fully focus on the role of Group Head, CFS.

In his new role, Lim will look at ways to drive and implement the Group’s community banking strategy across all geographies including branch banking, consumer lending, Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (SME) and Business Banking, sales and distribution, wealth management, payments, virtual banking, product innovation and customer segmentation.

Lee’s appointment includes single–captainship responsibility for the entire spectrum of operations in Maybank Singapore, which is one of the Group’s three home markets.

He will also be responsible for leading Maybank Singapore to further strengthen its position as a major financial services provider in Singapore. 

Lee was previously the Group Chief Risk Officer; a position that has already been assumed by Gilbert Kohnke starting today.

Kohnke will be responsible for leading the Group Risk transformation as well as balancing the need for resilient customer-centric risk practices amidst the increasingly stringent banking environment.

He will also be focusing on Group Risk being a relevant and value-adding strategic partner within the business areas.

“This is an ongoing process designed to strengthen the Group’s leadership team by bringing new ideas and further heightening the level of energy,” said Group President and CEO Datuk Abdul Farid Alias  in a statement.

“I welcome Gilbert into the Maybank Group, and believe that together with Dr John and Datuk Lim, their deep knowledge of the business and vast experience in banking will be invaluable to the Group.”
