Head of HR, Singapore & Indonesia
AMERICAN EXPRESS INTERNATIONAL
Joanna Miller started at American Express as director for change management in New York, and later in London. She eventually moved to Singapore and took on the leadership role in HR. In 2016, American Express Singapore was again named as one of the Best Employers by Aon Hewitt, as well as the Best Employer specifically for Generation Y, or the millennials, as evidenced by the increased internship applicant numbers. In the same year, Miller and her team also landed a spot in HRD’s inaugural list of Top HR Teams for the following accomplishments: setting up a sales community to facilitate knowledge sharing and network building among sales talent and leaders; forming a strategic task force that solicits inputs and insights from various functions of the business; and revamping the career program to a year-long flexible program to ensure continuous learning.
