Consultancy Mazars in Singapore has expanded its financial advisory and consulting practices by appointing two new local partners, Ellyn Tan and Athreya H.D.
This move follows the appointment of five new global partners in December 2022, including Chin Chee Choon (audit and assurance), Chester Liew (risk consulting), Elaine Chow (tax), Rain Chong (outsourcing) and Justin Lim (outsourcing).
In her new role, Tan will lead and expand Mazars’ restructuring and insolvency practice. With over 15 years of professional experience across renowned consulting, advisory and investment firms, she is a notable name in Singapore's restructuring and insolvency industry with extensive experience managing litigation, asset recovery and restructuring engagements.
Athreya has over 16 years of experience in financial services, with extensive experience in the banking sector and in-depth knowledge of enterprise risk management, regulatory compliance, internal audit and corporate governance.
With stints spanning India, the US, Malaysia and Singapore, he has led global and regional initiatives for international banks and has expertise in areas such as anti-money laundering, anti-fraud, customer due diligence, US foreign account tax and compliance, personal data protection and ESG (environmental, social and governance issues). At Mazars, he will manage and grow the portfolio of financial institution clients, focusing on risk management, regulatory compliance and corporate governance.
“[Both new hires] bring extensive experience in their respective fields, and their expertise and capabilities will be invaluable as we grow our service offerings in Singapore and the region,” says Rick Chan, managing partner and head of audit and assurance for Asia-Pacific. “Athreya’s addition to our team enhances our consulting capabilities and brings valuable insights into the Asia-Pacific market landscape. The financial services sector faces growing challenges, and his expertise in risk strategy and governance will allow us to better navigate these complexities.
“Additionally, Tan’s appointment comes at a time of increasing demand for financial advisory services, and she will play a critical role in helping us meet this demand and strengthen our position.”
