A Highly Experienced Leader managing Large, Diverse Teams
Anna enjoys the stimulation of keeping both the mind and body active. Besides leading a healthy lifestyle involving hikes, running marathons and spinning on her exercise bike, Anna also winds down by knitting and watching cerebral television shows in her free time.
With over 25 years of experience in the banking and IT industry, Anna has previously served as the chief of staff in major banks and has the keen knowledge of working closely with senior management. She has led and orchestrated large cross-geographical multi-cultural teams. Anna brings to NCS her extensive experience in strategy and planning, client service leadership, banking technology portfolio management, transformation program management, and outsourcing services delivery as she takes on her current role as NCS' Market Maker in the Greater China region. Anna focuses on originating strategic initiatives and opportunities in the global business division, particularly in China and Hong Kong.
Meeting Clients' Needs through Effective Engagement
Anna leverages on her understanding of market business needs and trends, to bring her clients' aspirations into reality. She provides consultative and advisory services to C-suite executives who are looking for appropriate solutions and partners in their digital transformation journeys and specialises in coming up with novel business strategies in the Greater China and Singapore regions to help clients grow their business. This is done by harnessing new technology trends and implementing it into the business strategy.

As the proud mother of three grown-up children — two of whom are internationally ranked chess players — Anna views chess as a metaphor for life, as she believes that the moves one chooses to make in chess reflects one’s personality and values. Just like a chess player, she is herself able to think multiple steps ahead and make well-considered decisions to deliver the best solutions for her clients.
