The changes follow the appointment of the company’s new chief executive officer role on July 1, who was previously AIA Singapore’s chief distribution officer.
AIA Singapore has made several changes to its management team: Ho Lee Yen, who is currently chief customer and marketing officer, was named chief distribution officer; Melita Teo, currently chief operations officer, will become chief customer and digital officer; and Tan Kian Loy to chief operations officer, the company announced in a statement.
«These changes are aligned with our efforts to continually reinvent AIA to better serve our customers and to enhance their digital experiences with us. But more importantly, these appointments are a true reflection of our strong commitment to our people and developing internal talents, who are committed to delivering the best outcomes for our customers and strive to keep AIA at the top of our game,» said Wong Sze Keed, who was appointed CEO at the start of the month.
