Tue, Sep 20, 2022, 10:52 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Sept 20, Colombo: AIA Sri Lanka has announced the appointment of Tan Hak Leh as the new Chairman of the Board of Directors (BOD) with effect from July 2022.

Tan Hak Leh is the Regional Chief Executive of AIA Group Limited with responsibility for the business operations in Thailand, Singapore, Brunei, Malaysia, Cambodia, Myanmar, Vietnam and now, Sri Lanka.

Hak Leh brings in a wealth of strategic experience and knowledge gained over 30 years of experience across extensive disciplines in the insurance industry in Asia, including 11 years with AIA Group. He holds a Bachelors in Actuarial Mathematics and Statistics (first class honors) from Heriot Watt University (UK) and is a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries (UK).

Hak Leh’s appointment is a great privilege to AIA Sri Lanka and is expected to steer the business forward in a challenging operating environment.

This appointment coincides with AIA Sri Lanka’s CEO Chathuri Munaweera being appointed to the Board of Directors of AIA Insurance Lanka. Taking office in May 2022, Chathuri is the first Sri Lankan CEO since AIA entered Sri Lanka and the first female to take on the CEO role.

Chathuri is a highly experienced executive with over 25 years of experience in the insurance industry in Sri Lanka. Prior to taking office as CEO, she was the Director Chief Officer Legal, Governance and Operations of AIA Insurance Lanka responsible for Life Operations, Corporate Law, Company Secretarial and External Relations and has previously been the Company’s Chief HR Officer and Chief Compliance Officer. Chathuri has been a member of the Executive Committee of the Company since 2006, playing a lead role in strategic planning and business achievements. She also led the complex corporate restructuring of AIA Sri Lanka to ultimately become a wholly owned subsidiary of AIA Group.

This new appointment to the AIA Sri Lanka’s BOD is yet another outstanding milestone in Chathuri’s professional journey.

With a history of over 100 years, AIA is the largest independent publicly listed pan-Asian life insurance group – with a presence in 18 markets across Asia.
