The Journey to becoming Singapore’s Most Valuable Brand : Conversation with Piyush Gupta

Dear Members & Friends of INDIA CLUB,

India Club is proud to host a distinguished son of India Mr. Piyush Gupta, CEO of DBS Bank. After a

distinguished career at Citibank, that spanned multiple countries and roles, including as country manager for Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore, Piyush was chosen to helm Singapore’s largest and most international bank. Piyush’s four year tenure at DBS has seen the Bank break through to becoming

Singapore’s most valuable brand. What was that journey like? What is it to be an Asian bank? Is it really a superior business strategy and value proposition? What sort of times are Asian banks set for? Piyush will be sharing his insights on these and other related topics.
