Alvin Chiang partners with regional and international clients on their leadership and governance challenges. Based in Singapore, Alvin utilizes his expertise and experience to help directors and CEOs better understand the nuances of governance, as well as enhancing performance and improving dynamics within their boards. Alvin’s work comes as part of a specialized division of Russell Reynolds Associated aimed at helping boards and CEOs face the unprecedented challenges that shape our world. Alvin has spent time in commercial and consulting roles, his last role as the Chief Strategy Officer of a Singapore-listed construction firm.

Before that he was a Senior Manager in PwC’s Risk Assurance practice, where he advised boards on corporate governance and enterprise risk. Alvin was also part of PwC’s Entrepreneurial & Private Business practice, where he worked closely with families of owner-managed businesses on issues relating to family governance. He began his career within the Singapore public service as an engineer in the Land Transport Authority, working on Intelligent Transport Systems.

Much of the corporate activism we see today is the result of an awakened generation’s desire to be more actively involved in defining what their world will look like. Perhaps in time, these activists would be seen less like barbarians at the gate but rather as crusaders for better governance.

Alvin holds a BEng in electrical and electronic engineering, with first class honors, from Imperial College London, and an MSc in risk management from New York University’s Stern School of Business.
