DBS appoints former Citibank Singapore CEO as group head of strategy and planning

Han Kwee Juan is a veteran banker with a formidable 27-year career experience.

DBS Group Holdings announced that veteran banker Han Kwee Juan will join the bank as its group head of strategy and planning by April.

Banking on an extensive 27-year career leading various businesses including consumer banking, corporate banking and transaction banking, Han will occupy the role previously held by Shee Tse Koon who in turn moved on to become DBS’ Singapore country head in December 2018.

Han served as the former CEO of Citibank Singapore, a position he held since 2012. He had oversight of Citi’s onshore retail banking, wealth management, cards and personal loans, mortgage and retail SME businesses in Singapore.

“From time to time, it is also good to supplement our bench with external talent, allowing us to gain new perspectives,” DBS’ CEO Piyush Gupta said in a statement. “Kwee Juan will be a good addition, and I look forward to leading this solid team as we continue on our journey.”
