Synechron Inc., a leading Digital IT Consulting firm for financial services, has today announced the appointment of May Yang as Global Head of Operations, as the firm prepares for its next phase of expansion following rapid growth over the last four years where the company doubled in size. Yang will report directly to Synechron’s Co-founder and CEO Faisal Husain and will work alongside Synechron’s global teams to support corporate operations and help take Synechron’s business to the next level. Her role will be focused on creating a more streamlined approach to day-to-day global operations to aid in unlocking talent, cutting down sales and onboarding cycles, and creating greater parallel structure across the business.
Yang’s appointment comes after nearly a decade contributing to Synechron’s operational growth, most recently as Chief of Staff following 8+ years of sales and operational experience in the London and Singapore markets. In her new role, she will be focused on lending that experience at a global scale by creating greater collaboration and coordination across all geographies. The role’s priorities will include driving corporate governance and efficiency in the bench, recruitment and talent management, as well as advancing global operational initiatives across Synechron and enhancing global employee experiences and engagements.
Prior to her tenure at Synechron, Yang served as a Consultant at Searchasia, where she worked with both local and multi-national companies on the search for middle-to-senior-level talent across the Oil & Gas and IT&T industries. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering from the Nanyang Technological University with study abroad at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay.

As I step into this new role, I’m energized to work with the global teams to continue to streamline Synechron’s global operations and to help support our business objectives,” said May Yang, Global Head of Operations at Synechron.
Faisal Husain, Co-founder and CEO of Synechron said, “As an industry, the race to a 2020 vision includes big goals for growth and digital transformation. While Synechron is helping its clients accelerate these initiatives, it is important for us to maintain that vision internally. May’s long history with Synechron, her proven impact in local markets and understanding of our business make her a natural fit as Global Head of Operations to create more operational efficiencies and standardization of processes globally.”
