SGX’s CEO, Loh Boon Chye says, “Sutat has been a valuable colleague and member of the SGX executive management team over the years, pioneering platforms and products that are a key feature of SGX’s business today. We would like to thank him for his leadership, service and commitment in elevating the significance of our capital markets, and along with it the expansion of SGX’s international business.”
“As we enter a new growth stage, we are pleased to welcome Pol to SGX. He adds perspective and experience honed from a vast network of relationships with regional issuers, global investors and major exchanges. With Pol’s leadership, we look forward to broadening and deepening the businesses Sutat and the team have built,” he adds.
“I'm honoured and excited to join SGX as its next head of global sales and origination. The role represents a challenge that I am very much looking forward to at an exciting time for Asian capital markets and market structure developments. Building on its strong foundations, I see significant opportunities ahead for SGX and I look forward to working with colleagues across the organisation to help drive the company forward,” says de Win.
“It has been an exhilarating journey for me working with a fantastic team of colleagues and friends through SGX's transformation under Hsieh Fu Hua, the late Magnus Bocker, and Loh Boon Chye. I am equally grateful for all the support partners and clients have generously given over the years. Having led SGX CSR & Bull Charge for the last decade, I was and continue to be inspired by community work. I therefore look forward to devoting more time to social sector pursuits and cheering on Team SGX and our capital markets, says Chew.
