  • 19 Dec 2019

Singapore, 19 December 2019 – OCBC Bank today announced that it has added two senior leaders to its 24-member Management Committee. Mr Sunny Quek, 46, took over as Head of Consumer Financial Services, Singapore on 13 November 2019. Mr Wang Ke, 51, was appointed as the new Chief Executive Officer of OCBC Wing Hang Bank (China) on 9 December 2019.

Mr Sunny Quek

Mr Quek joined OCBC Bank in December 2012 as Head, Branch and Premier Banking, Singapore. Prior to this, he was the Branch Banking Director at Citibank Singapore. Over the past seven years, Mr Quek was responsible for formulating and executing the sales and distribution strategy for the consumer banking branch network in Singapore and the OCBC Premier Banking business. He led the OCBC Premier Banking business to become a leader in the affluent segment space in the region. In 2018, he spearheaded the transformation of the OCBC Premier Private Client segment to launch an Accredited Investor (AI) platform offering bespoke wealth solutions to high net worth individuals in Singapore as well as the offshore segment. He has also leveraged digitalisation to increase efficiency and enhance the end-to-end client experience across the different touchpoints for retail and affluent customers. 

In his new role as Head of Consumer Financial Services, Singapore, he reports to OCBC Bank’s Chief Operating Officer, Mr Ching Wei Hong.

Mr Wang Ke

Mr Wang Ke

Mr Wang joined OCBC Bank (China) as Chief Information Officer and Head of the IT Department in 2012 and later took on an expanded role as Head of Operations & Technology. Prior to becoming CEO, Mr Wang was the Regional General Manager of the Pearl River Delta Region and was appointed as the Deputy President of OCBC Bank (China) in March 2015. After the merger of OCBC Bank (China) and Wing Hang Bank (China) in July 2016, the newly-formed subsidiary of OCBC Wing Hang Bank was renamed OCBC Wing Hang Bank (China). Before joining OCBC Wing Hang Bank (China), Mr Wang held senior positions in JPMorgan Chase & Co., McKinsey & Company, and United Overseas Bank (China), overseeing a wide range of portfolios.

Mr Wang’s deep understanding of foreign companies’ business models in China combined with his intimate knowledge of the local market and regulations helps him to play a key role in the strategy formulation of OCBC Bank’s Greater China business. Greater China is OCBC Bank’s second biggest market outside of Singapore, accounting for about 20 per cent of the core profits before tax as at 30 September 2019. His experience in operations and technology, as well as his broad-based experience in financial services and knowledge of China, allows him to bring a broad business perspective to his new role.

He reports to Mr Na Wu Beng, the Chief Executive Officer of OCBC Wing Hang Bank, who is based in Hong Kong.

Group Chief Executive Officer, Mr Samuel Tsien, said the new appointments reflect the Bank’s strong internal talent base for succession planning. “We actively manage and plan ahead for succession planning and we review regularly our mid- to senior-level management bench strength on a forward-looking basis. We invest in our people, develop them and provide them with opportunities to realise their fullest potential. 

“Both Sunny and Wang Ke are internal candidates who have the depth and breadth of knowledge and expertise to continue growing and deepening their respective areas of businesses. Wealth management and China as part of Greater China are two strategic pillars of our Corporate Strategy. I am confident that Sunny and Wang Ke will bring our franchise to greater heights.”
