Head of Group HR, OCBC Bank
As Head of Group Human Resources, Jason leads the People and Organisational strategy at OCBC Bank, across our offices in 18 countries. He also serves as a Director of The Institute of HR Professionals, and a member of the HR Sectoral Tripartite Committee and IBF Future-Enabled Workgroup.
Jason started his career as a Management Associate at Citibank in fixed income sales trading and has built over 30 years of experience in financial services at Volvo Group Treasury Asia Limited, Standard Chartered and KBC, a Belgium-based bank, before joining OCBC Bank as the Global Head of Asset & Liability Management. Having worked on the business side in leadership positions in sales, trading and treasury management, making the switch into human capital management two years ago puts him in a strong position to influence and build OCBC Bank’s people agenda that will drive business decisions and enable the company’s long-term growth.
He is currently driving the HR transformation agenda, introducing new HR capabilities such as Employer Branding and Marketing, Social Recruiting, HR Analytics and Future Workforce Planning. He has paved the way for greater collaboration between HR and IT, as HR embraces new technologies including a cloud-based Talent Management and Learning Management system, and a Social Collaboration tool. Jason is passionate about people and a firm believer in the Bank’s culture of believing in potential and investing in people.
