DBS Group Holdings has appointed Eugene Huang as chief information officer, effective May 10.

In this role, he will be a member of the DBS Group executive committee, and report to chief executive officer Piyush Gupta.

With over 36 years of technology and banking experience, Huang joins DBS from Ping An Group, where he led a team of 22,000 employees providing a full suite of IT offerings – including infrastructure, cyber security, middleware and customer-facing applications. He was concurrently chairman and CEO of Ping An Technology, the technology arm of Ping An Group, with P&L responsibilities.

An American citizen, Huang has worked in leading financial centres, and in both start-ups and multinational corporations. In the early part of his career, he spent nearly 10 years in New York with Salomon Smith Barney and Credit Suisse First Boston. He was subsequently with Citigroup and HSBC.

Prior to his latest role at Ping An Group, he was deputy general manager, chief technology officer and chief operating officer at OneConnect Financial Technology. Launched by Ping An in 2015, OneConnect is a technology services platform for financial institutions around the world. Huang played an integral role in the company’s listing on the New York Stock Exchange in 2019, just four years after its establishment.

Huang will take over the CIO role from Han Kwee Juan, who has been double-hatting as DBS acting CIO and Singapore country head since November 2023. Following this, Han will return full-time to being Singapore country head from June 1.
