Bank of Singapore has announced the appointment of Ronnie Cheung as chief operating officer (COO) of Greater China, Hong Kong branch, effective from 19 March 2024.

Based in Hong Kong, she will report locally to Cindy Wong, chief executive of the bank’s Hong Kong branch and functionally to Jacky Ang, global COO at Bank of Singapore.

In her role, Cheung will be responsible for the governance and operations of Bank of Singapore’s Hong Kong branch to support the franchise’s continued growth across Greater China. She will also spearhead the bank’s transformation efforts and execution of key strategic initiatives in the region.

She has worked at various leading international banks including Goldman Sachs, UBS and BNP Paribas.

The appointment is part of Bank of Singapore’s continuous efforts to bolster its bench strength to entrench the bank’s leadership in Hong Kong.

Ang said: “Greater China continues to represent a key region for Bank of Singapore. We are delighted to welcome Ronnie to the family. She is joining us with an impressive track record, adding a wealth of experience at this important juncture. I am confident that she will play a key role in driving our strategic and operational objectives in Greater China, positioning our Hong Kong hub for continued growth and success.”

Cheung holds a first-class honours bachelor's degree from Queen's University in Canada and a master’s in business administration from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
