Mr. Ng Keng Hooi
Ng Keng Hooi is Group Chief Executive and President of AIA Group Limited.
Prior to his current role, which he assumed on June 1, 2017, Keng Hooi was Regional Chief Executive at AIA Group, responsible for the Group’s business operations in China, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Taiwan and Brunei as well as Group Agency Distribution.
Keng Hooi has a wealth of industry experience that spans more than 30 years – both in general management as well as hands-on operational roles covering a broad range of functions.
Keng Hooi joined AIA Group in October 2010 from Great Eastern Holdings where he was Group Chief Executive from December 2008, driving impressive growth in business results.
Previously, Keng Hooi was with Prudential for almost 20 years, including as a member of Prudential Corporation Asia’s board and Regional Managing Director of Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia – three of Prudential’s key markets. This followed his very successful tenure as CEO of Prudential Malaysia during which he grew the business from a Number 9 ranking with 3 per cent new business market share to the Number 2 ranked insurer with 20 per cent market share, while expanding that company’s number of agents from 400 to 10,000. Keng Hooi also spearheaded Prudential’s entry into the Takaful business in Malaysia.
Keng Hooi has a past link to AIA: earlier in his career, he worked at AIA Malaysia for six years, where he started in the Actuarial department before becoming Head of Life Operations.
Keng Hooi is passionate about growing businesses and developing people. As Group Chief Executive and President of AIA Group, he views AIA’s next chapter of growth as the ideal platform to continue to pursue these two lifelong passions.
