Global fintech Finder and property consultancy Knight Frank have made senior appointments.
Finder appoints chief growth officer
Global fintech player Finder has named Jinnee Lim as Chief Growth Officer, Southeast Asia, with immediate effect. Lim will work closely to identify and pursue new growth opportunities in the region. Her immediate focus will be ramping up Finder’s key capabilities in content creation, marketing and partnerships.
This appointment follows the company’s recent purchase of the GoBear brand across seven markets – Singapore, Hong Kong SAR, Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia.
Lim comes from GoBear, where she was the Chief Strategy Officer and was involved in the sale of the marketplace assets to Finder. She has more than 15 years of experience in corporate strategy, business development and strategic transformation.
Prior to GoBear, Lim has worked with UBS AG most recently as the Asia Pacific head of client programmes & segments.
