Kuan Moon Yuen

Speaker Bio

Mr Yuen Kuan Moon has been Group CEO of Singtel since 1 January 2021. That same year, he embarked on a strategic reset of the Group’s businesses given the unrelenting pace of digitalisation, concurrently accelerated by the advent of the pandemic. Under his watch, Singtel has established 5G leadership and reinvigorated its core telecoms business; developed new growth engines by turning NCS into a B2B digital services champion and forming a regional data centre business; and unlocked the value of Singtel’s quality infrastructure assets to recycle capital into higher growth areas. While pursuing business growth, Moon has championed sustainability and people with renewed vigour and hopes to build an inclusive digital future.

Moon began his career at Singtel in 1993 and has held several leadership roles in Marketing, Business Development and Sales. Prior to his appointment as Group CEO, Moon was CEO, Consumer Singapore, a post he had held since June 2012. He was also responsible for driving the Group's overall digital transformation as Group Chief Digital Officer from August 2018 to December 2020.

Moon sits on the boards of Singtel and its key subsidiaries, serving on the Board of Commissioners in Telkomsel since 2009. In addition, Moon is a Board member of GSMA and the Singapore Institute of Management. He is also a member of Singapore's Ministry of Communications and Information's Digital Readiness Council, the Monetary Authority of Singapore's Payments Council and the Ngee Ann Polytechnic Council.

Moon holds a First Class Honours degree in Engineering from the University of Western Australia and a Master of Science in Management from Stanford University.
