  • By Christine St Anne

Airwallex has hired brand expert Susan Ho to lead its brand, communications and partnerships.

Ho has over twenty years’ experience in marketing, most recently at international communications giant Brunswick, where she headed up their Hong Kong office as a partner.

She has also garnered a long career in Standard Chartered Bank, working in its corporate and retail banking business.

Ho is Malaysian-Chinese and currently serves as Governor at Maggie’s Cancer Centre and Board Director of AFS Hong Kong Cultural Exchange

Ho’s appointment follows Airwallex’s recent fund raising announcement that will continue to accelerate its growth plans.

“Susan’s appointment signals our ambition to strengthen the Airwallex brand and position ourselves to be the preferred financial services platform for clients today and businesses of the future,” Airwallex CEO and co-founder Jack Zhang said.

Airwallex also recently expanded Kai Wu’s role to Greater China CEO on top of his CFO responsibilities, in a progression of steps to strengthen its management team.  

This follows another recent high-profile appointment, Jeanette Chan, one of Asia Pacific’s most reputed legal advisors, as chief compliance officer and general counsel.
