Unispace to leverage new CFO’s 25 years of operational excellence experience to support next stage of growth.
We’re excited to welcome Amanda Tham as our Global Chief Financial Officer (CFO), who brings to the table more than 25 years’ experience in executive leadership positions at some of the world’s biggest brands – Hiscox, State Street and General Electric.
CFO to spearhead Unispace’s next stage of growth through operational excellence
As our new CFO, Amanda will play a pivotal role in spearheading Unispace’s growth plans both geographically and through deepening our specializations across offices, labs, higher education, sports and entertainment spaces, and through embedding operational excellence. Within the past year alone, together with our owner equity firm PAG, we’ve materialised our growth plans through acquiring global experiential design firm Downstream and Irish life sciences engineering design firm Biopharma Engineering—now ‘Unispace Life Sciences.’
Brings 25 years of experience in executive leadership positions
Amanda brings an impressive tenure in executive leadership positions across multiple industries and countries to Unispace – including serving as Group CFO of the Asia unit of Hiscox Ltd, Managing Director of Business Development for State Street Bank, and CFO for General Electric. She will work across all regions Unispace operates in – Asia, EMEA, ANZ and Americas – with her base at Unispace’s London and Singapore studios.
“Amanda's unique blend of industry experience, along with previous work with private equity investors, will be instrumental in helping us achieve our growth plans,” said Steve Quick, Global CEO at Unispace. Adding, “we are thrilled to see that our unique platform and culture continues to attract top talent with diverse experiences, enabling us to better support our clients with creating spaces that accelerate business and people success.”
“Unispace has an incredible offering. I’m looking forward to building on our momentum and helping to deliver success for our clients. I was also inspired by Unispace’s focus on building a strong Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) program,” said Amanda. “With my passion for ‘financial inclusion,’ I’m excited to contribute to that.”
Amanda’s passion for financial inclusion has led her to dedicate her business and finance experience to helping non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and B-Corporations grow sustainably and accomplish their mission in this regard. She is a board member of Bettr Lives and created a Financial Literacy Program for Bettr Barista, the first B Corporation in Singapore working with marginalized women and youths.
