Shinbo Won was named head of Asia-Pacific (ex-Japan) research at Institutional Shareholder Services, effective Aug. 3.
Mr. Won replaces Jun Frank, “who will take on a new role within the ISS family later this year,” a news release said.
Mr. Won, who will be based in Singapore, was based in Seoul as head of the ISS Korea research unit.
“He will continue to steward Korea research alongside Asia-Pacific (ex-Japan) more broadly,” Subodh Mishra, ISS executive director, communications, said in an e-mail.
Mr. Won will lead a team “providing proxy research and recommendations for more than 5,000 company shareholder meetings annually in 14 Asia-Pacific markets outside Japan, including Hong Kong, Korea, China, India, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia,” the news release said. “He will also steward development of ISS’ benchmark voting policies for those markets, as well as thought-leadership efforts for the region.”
