KUALA LUMPUR: Maybank Group Chief Risk Officer John Lee was named the Risk Manager of the Year at the Asian Banker Business Achievement Award Dinner during the 15th Asian Banker Summit in Kuala Lumpur.
The organiser of this annual award picks the winner from the best-run risk management teams in financial institutions in Asia Pacific and Middle East regions.
At the awards ceremony, Lee said that the award reflects the transformation of the group of being a Regional Financial Services Leader and advancing the cause of risk management in the industry.
