OCBC Bank announced the appointment of Goh Chin Yee as the Group Chief Financial Officer, effective 1 November onwards, to succeed Darren Tan who has opted for early retirement.
Goh who is already a member of the Management Committee will also be appointed a member of the Management Executive Committee.
Currently the Head of Group Audit since 2013, Goh joined OCBC Bank as a management trainee and rose through the ranks across many divisions, including corporate planning, investment research, asset management, finance, risk management and global treasury.
