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.”
