Financial services provider Apex Group has appointed Debbie Lee as country head for China. Based in Shanghai, Lee will be responsible for driving the firm’s continued growth and performance across the Asia-Pacific region. She will be reporting to APAC head Valerie Mantot-Groene.
Lee joins Apex from TMF Group, where she was most recently the market lead of fund services for TMF China. In this role, she led the delivery of services to international corporations with a focus on hedge funds, private equity and real estate, and venture capital clients. Prior to that, she spent over a decade in various China-stationed consultancy roles. An accountant by training, Lee started her career at KPMG, Hong Kong.
Apex opened its first office in Asia-Pacific in 2007 and now has seven offices and over 190 employees across the region, with about US$40 billion in regional assets under administration.
Lee’s appointment follows Apex’s recent announcement that Claudia Bolanos has joined Apex in Hong Kong as head of corporate services, Asia-Pacific, bringing over a decade of business development and operational experience to her new role.
