In a filing with Bursa Malaysia, the property investment and capital financing firm said Ju Yan, 35, had over 14 years of experience in financial services, having worked in Citibank Malaysia and Morgan Stanley in New York, Hong Kong and Singapore.
In 2004, he joined OSK Investment Bank Bhd in Malaysia where he last held the position of chief operating officer and head of investment banking.
On Friday Ju Yan was also appointed executive director of OSK Property Holdings Bhd and PJ Development Holdings Bhd.
In a separate filing, OSK Holdings said it had appointed Ju Yan’s brother Ong Ju Xing, 30, as executive director.
He has worked with multinational corporations across several industries, namely corporate restructuring with Ernst & Young, consumer banking with HSBC, investment banking with Credit Suisse and management consulting with Accenture.
