SINGAPORE/ BANGKOK, THAILAND/ TAIPEI, TAIWAN - Media OutReach - 24 March 2023 - American Express has appointed Walter Liu in the newly created position of Head of Asia Region.

Walter is a seasoned business leader and risk management veteran with more than 20 years of experience with American Express. With a track record of building and leading high performing teams, combined with a multi-faceted understanding of the Asia region, Walter is well-positioned to lead the region as American Express furthers its strategy to own and serve the premium segment in Asia.

American Express has established a strong brand presence in Asia, which is a region positioned for tremendous growth. Along with this primary asset, I believe that our dedicated colleagues and the experienced country management teams will continue to be the key factors in owning the premium space, in capitalizing on cross-border opportunities, building long-lasting partnerships, and in growing a relevant, scalable, and sustainable business for our future.'

Under his leadership, American Express became the first, and so far, only foreign payments network operator licensed by the People's Bank of China to process renminbi transactions in China. The company now partners with multiple bank issuers, merchant acquirers and strategic partners to operate a thriving network and business for American Express in China.
