SINGAPORE - OCBC Bank veteran, Dr Cheong Choong Kong, will retire as chairman of its board of directors on Aug 31.

He will be succeeded on Sep 1 by Mr Ooi Sang Kuang, the non-executive lead independent director of the board.

But it's not goodbye for Dr Cheong, as the veteral will remain a director of OCBC and Great Eastern Holdings.

The bank says this will provide continuity so the OCBC group can still "benefit from his experience and wise counsel for a little longer".
