Peter Seah, chairman of DBSH and DBS Bank said, “I join my fellow directors in welcoming David to the DBS Group and DBS Bank Boards. I’ve had the privilege of working closely with David in his capacity as a board member of DBS Bank Hong Kong, and his deep knowledge of technology and insights on doing business in China have been invaluable. David’s expertise and experience will complement that of the main boards as DBS continues to reimagine banking and set itself apart as an Asia-centric banking leader”.
