She was formerly chief executive for Singapore and South-east Asia for the property consultancy since 2010.

Meanwhile, CBRE long-timer Moray Armstrong has been appointed managing director of the Singapore business, after previously serving as managing director of the Advisory & Transactions (A&T) team.

Given Singapore's importance as a hub for the company's regional business, Ms Goh said "we need a dedicated leader to take the company and people forward in this next phase of growth".

She added: "Under Moray's leadership, CBRE's A&T team has captured the largest market share of leasing transactions in Singapore. With 32 years of commercial real estate experience under his belt, local market knowledge and established relationships, I am confident that Moray will be able to take CBRE to greater heights."

Mr Armstrong, managing director of Singapore, CBRE, commented: "CBRE's Singapore business has enjoyed tremendous growth over the past 20 years. Our established brokerage and professional services platform enjoys impressive market share and we will continue to  invest in the best industry talent. There are also clear opportunities to grow our advisory business in response to clients' changing requirements. CBRE will look to harness innovation and proptech to ensure the firm's key customer base has access to market-leading, relevant and impactful technology."

The three will report to Anshuman Magazine, chairman and chief executive of India, South-east Asia, Middle East and Africa.
