Senior Vice President, Head of Customer Solutions, South-east Asia
About Sharon Chew
A consumer financial services leader with over 20 years of experience across strategy, commercial management and marketing, I accelerate business growth at the intersection of sales and people development.
Having spearheaded critical business transformations and led diverse teams through multiple business cycles, I am known for setting the direction through strategic leadership, effectively nurturing stakeholders and visibly impactIng bottom lines.
Innately entrepreneurial, not only am I able to define the big picture, but also connect the dots between developing the strategy and working across multiple stakeholders to deliver on the strategy. I curate solutions by brainstorming with team members, deconstructing ideas and business plans and creatively finding solutions by leveraging analytics, customer insights and the expertise of people and teams.
Having led teams across Asia and Europe, I harness a keen sense of business agility, empathy and inclusiveness which I leverage to nurture cross-cultural teams and navigate across complex problems. As part of a rare breed of women who has navigated the journey towards C-level leadership in the financial services sector, I understand the unique challenges and this has led me to being an advocate for growing the talent base in Asia, in particular female talent. Deeply committed to the cause, I have for the past 10+ years, proactively mentored and trained aspiring professionals seeking to scale.
