Director, HR – Global

Billy Tan joined retailer Williams-Sonoma’s team in its Singapore office when the company decided to expand its presence outside of the US and provide in-house key functions. Kick-starting HR operations in Asia has been a challenge but also an invaluable opportunity that Tan and his team have welcomed, as it has allowed them to become “builders” and “pioneers”. Talent attraction and retention are Tan’s top priorities in 2017.
