(Singapore - 12 January 2011)
Prudential Assurance Company Singapore (Pte) Ltd (“Prudential Singapore”) today announced the appointment of Ms Gan Peck Yeow as Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO), effective from January 3, 2011. As CHRO, Peck Yeow will align HR programmes and policies with Prudential Singapore’s business strategies, deliver value to the business as well as drive, develop and manage the company’s talent and succession planning.
Prior to joining Prudential, Peck Yeow was Director of Human Resources at M1 Limited for 15 years where she was instrumental in the formation of the HR department in a start-up environment of more than 1,200 employees. In her previous role, Peck Yeow was also Secretary to the Remuneration Committee.
At Prudential, the retention and development of its employees is a key priority. In particular, the company wants to ensure it has the right people to step up the task of spearheading its expansion in Singapore. With a strong background and success in heading and managing the full spectrum of HR functions, including Learning and Development and Industrial Relations, Peck Yeow will undoubtedly position the company’s talent management higher up the strategic agenda and raise the profile of the human resources function in a very positive way.
Peck Yeow holds a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree from the National University of Singapore and a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Warwick, United Kingdom. She also has a post-graduate Diploma in Human Resource from the Singapore Institute of Management.
