MAYBANK has named Michael Oh-Lau Chong Jin as chief executive of Maybank Investment Banking Group (MIBG), where he will oversee the investment banking arm's services across Asean with effect from Dec 1.
Oh-Lau will succeed Ami Moris, who will retire after about four years in the role.
During his 27-year tenure with Maybank, Oh-Lau was responsible for cementing Maybank's position as the leading regional sukuk arranger. He has also held key leadership roles in the bank's debt markets and corporate banking divisions, the bank shared in a press release on Thursday (Nov 3).
Most recently, he was managing director of corporate banking for group global banking.
Said Khairussaleh Ramli, group president and chief executive of Maybank: "Michael's appointment is a testament to the group's strong internal succession pipeline based on an individual's proven capabilities and track record."
Oh-Lau holds a Bachelor of Science in general management from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and was a recipient of the Asian Banker Promising Young Banker Awards in 2011.
