DST Global Solutions, a leading provider of technology solutions to the financial services industry, has appointed Karen Pang and Valerie Tan as new heads of sales for its Hong Kong and Singapore operations respectively. Their joint focus will be to support the firm’s growth plans in the region by accelerating new client acquisition across Asia.

Karen Pang joins the Hong Kong office, established more than 15 years ago, bringing more than 10 years experience in the financial services industry. Karen joins from the Coleman Research Group, where she was regional sales director; prior to that, Karen was with FactSet, where she held senior positions in both its consulting and sales operations. Karen is a CFA and FRM charter holder, and holds an MBA from the University of Southampton and a Bsc (Honours) from City University, Hong Kong.

Speaking about her appointment, Karen said, “DST Global Solutions has a strong market presence and a very good reputation in Hong Kong. I am delighted to be onboard, as I see great potential in working closely with our existing clients and prospects to provide them with the solutions they need.”

In Singapore, Valerie Tan moved into the sales management role after two years as a customer relationship manager. Prior to joining DST Global Solutions, Valerie was sales and account manager at Wiltshire Analytics.

Valerie said, “In the two years since I joined DST Global Solutions’ Singapore operation, I have worked closely with our existing clients to provide them with the best service available, and am now excited about my new role as it provides me with the opportunity to do more in this regard whilst working to grow our client community.”

DST Global Solutions has over the years developed a strong presence across Asia, and in particular has established a strong track record in Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia. Singapore and Hong Kong represent the heart of Asia’s financial markets, and are also DST Global Solutions’ two longest-running Asian operations, serving 60 percent of DST Global Solutions total volume of clients across Asia.
