Singapore – Credit card service company American Express has elevated Marlin Brown, its former country manager of Thailand, to be its new country manager for Singapore, where he will be responsible for the company’s corporate, small business, and consumer card businesses.
Brown joined American Express in 2011, and has held several roles across the company’s consumer teams and worked in various locations including New York, Hong Kong, and Thailand. He was also a part of the American Express finance organisation leading the controllership teams across China, Hong Kong, the Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand.
Moreover, before joining American Express, Brown was a senior manager with KPMG’s national office in New York City. He is also a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and holds an accounting degree from Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas.
Commenting on his new role, Brown said, “We have a great brand in Singapore, known for our exceptional customer service and being a trusted partner to our Card Members. Together with my team, we are excited to continue our focus on growing, especially in the premium space, by continuing to evolve with our Card Members as they expand their lifestyle and experiences beyond travel.”
Meanwhile, Fredrik Sauter, senior vice president and head of growing markets cluster and international card services at American Express, noted, “Singapore is an important part of American Express’ overall strategy, and we want to not only accelerate our growth in the country, but also reinforce our leadership in the premium space. With Marlin’s knowledge, understanding of the business and the region, his solution-focused approach and strategic perspective, I’m sure our Singapore business will grow from strength to strength.”
