This will naturally include driving top- and bottom-line financial performance, inspiring and motivating people, marshalling optimum resources (technology and people) whilst driving the evolution of the firm as it embraces and adopts all aspects of modern digital technology platforms. Whilst not quite a start-up, the opportunity is very similar given the mandate for growth, encouragement and appetite to introduce a modern technology platform, a drive for scale complete with commercialisation and sustainable profitability. Necessarily, operating within a dynamic market, the CEO will be required to make critical decisions relating to business direction and structure whilst continuously evaluating opportunities for growth whilst also ensuring the organisation structure continuously evolves and transforms in alignment with the business. In short, the CEO will provide vision and compelling leadership acumen that is underpinned by a commitment to excellence and continuous improvement within a hugely competitive sector.



The Person
Interested candidates will possess a Degree with at least 15 years of working experience in a highly-regulated, start-up environment (Insurance, Banking, Fintech, Microfinace) whilst ideally having built formative experience within a noted, first-tier firm and to rigorous international standards. Aside from a thorough appreciation for traditional insurance/banking, a record of delivering profitable and sustainable growth, candidates must have a track record in championing ‘Digital’ technology platforms. To succeed in this role, the CEO must be driven, energetic and have a passion to work in a highly competitive and rapidly changing environment. Equally important will be a need to demonstrate huge passion and enthusiasm. Candidates must have prior experience of working in Indochina.
