On behalf of the Board of Governors at the American Chamber of Commerce in Singapore (AmCham), I am reaching out to let you know that Ann Yom Steel, Executive Director, American Chamber of Commerce in Singapore, is leaving to pursue personal interests outside of the organization. Her last day is today, 20 September 2019.
During her tenure of over two years, Ann led the Chamber in advancing the interests of the U.S. business community in Singapore and the region. She accelerated the momentum of the Chamber ─ the largest and the most active international business association in Singapore and Southeast Asia, with over 5,200 members representing more than 700 companies – and put us on a sound financial footing in addition to leading our efforts to influence policy, public opinion, media, and the broader business community. Ann’s dedication to advocacy, programming, and business value was evident in the Chamber’s nearly 250 events held per year, including City Hall Dialogues, AmCham Women, Young Professionals Forum, and the upcoming AmChams of Asia Pacific (AAP) Business Summit 2020 in Singapore.
Ann has led a dedicated team, each of whom play an integral role in the everyday running of such a successful Chamber, and leaves AmCham in a strong position for future growth.
Dr. Hsien-Hsien Lei, who currently serves on the Board of Governors, has been appointed interim executive director effective 1 October, 2019 as we begin the process of permanently filling the position. This will ensure continuity and aid the transition of a new permanent executive director.
We would like to thank Ann for her energy, leadership, and strong commitment to the Chamber, our members, and key stakeholders, and wish her a successful future ahead.
