Based in Singapore, she joined Mastercard in 2000 and until recently was responsible for external and internal communications and corporate social responsibility throughout the Asia Pacific region. She is now part of a global team working to develop the Mastercard narrative for the New Economy.

Over the years, Ms. Tan has worked to establish Mastercard as a thought leader through the development and promotion of Mastercard’s suite of research properties, which serve as a benchmark for a myriad of economic, industry and consumer trends.

She has done this while also spearheading Mastercard’s Corporate Social Responsibility efforts – mainly education and development programs to help empower women and children across the region.

In 2005, in keeping with Mastercard’s philosophy of helping people to participate fully in the economy, she launched an index that specifically measures women’s socio-economic advancement in the Asia Pacific region – the Mastercard Index of Women’s Advancement. And in 2016, she spearheaded the launch of the Mastercard Index of Women Entrepreneurs in Asia Pacific. This Index went global the following year.

She currently serves on the Executive Committee of the National Committee for UN Women Singapore where she is the co-founder for the award-winning Project Inspire initiative.
