Singapore, Aug 18 (PTI) DBS Group’s Indian-origin CEO Piyush Gupta has been appointed Chairman of the Singapore Management University from January next year.

Gupta, who has been a member of the SMU board of trustees since January this year, will take over from founding chairman Ho Kwon Ping who will step down on January 11 next year after 25 years of leadership, the institution announced on Wednesday.

“In these fast-changing, disruptive times, universities play a key role, not just in leading and shaping thinking through cutting-edge research, but also in training our young people in multi-disciplinary ways of problem-solving,” said Meerut-born Gupta, a 62-year-old international banker whose global financial intuition is to focus on India.
