Edmund Tse, AIA group chairman said, “Keng Hooi is a proven leader with an impressive track record and I am delighted that he will succeed Mark as group chief executive and president of AIA. This appointment follows a rigorous and extensive succession process, which included consideration of internal and external candidates. For the last six and a half years, Keng Hooi has excelled in the role of regional chief executive for AIA displaying first-class leadership and strategic vision while consistently delivering strong results. He is ideally qualified to build on AIA’s success to-date. On behalf of the entire Board, I would like to express my sincere thanks to Mark who has made a huge and lasting contribution to AIA as group chief executive and president, having led the company from its IPO in 2010.”
