HSBC Singapore adds two directors to board

HSBC Singapore has appointed Penny Goh and Josh Bottomley to its board of directors, the firm said in a press release on Wednesday.

Goh is a co-chairman and senior partner of Allen & Gledhill, and leads the law firm’s corporate real estate practice. With the appointment, she will become a member of HSBC Singapore’s Audit and Risk committees. Bottomley is HSBC’s global head of Digital, Retail Banking and Wealth Management, a role he has held since May 2013. He has also held various senior appointments at Google and LexisNexis.

Mr Mukhtar Hussain, chairman of HSBC Singapore and HSBC's Asia-Pacific head for the Belt and Road Initiative, said: "Singapore is a growth market for HSBC and one where we want to build scale, and both appointments have a very strong and significant connection in support of delivering the strategy."

The two new board members will help the bank accelerate its business transformation in Singapore and deepen its foray into the digital space.
