Ex-SGX CEO Hsieh Fu Hua to head NCSS board

SINGAPORE: Former Singapore Exchange CEO Hsieh Fu Hua has been appointed as president of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) board.

His two-year appointment will take effect from August 1.

The council is the umbrella body for about 400 member voluntary welfare organisations in Singapore.

It provides leadership to nurture and develop the social service sector through enhancing the capabilities of social service organisations and promoting strategic partnerships for social services.

Mr Hsieh will take over from current president Rear-Admiral (Ret) Kwek Siew Jin, who will complete his term on July 31.

Mr Hsieh left SGX in 2009 and set up BinjaiTree, a privately-run charity that gives out grants to various organisations that help improve the lives of the disadvantaged.

He also helped establish two charities, Shared Services for Charites and Caregiver Alliance Limited.

BinjaiTree has worked closely with NCSS, the Health Ministry and mental health service providers such as the Singapore Anglican Community Services to help people with mental illnesses reintegrate into society.
