Deborah Woollard, CPO, MyRepublic

In this role, Deborah will spearhead the development and implementation of MyRepublic’s people and culture strategy across the Group.

Singapore-based telco, MyRepublic, has appointed Deborah Woollard (pictured) as Chief People Officer (CPO), effective September 2021. In this role, Deborah will spearhead the development and implementation of MyRepublic’s people and culture strategy across the Group, to support its business and expansion plans.

Malcolm Rodrigues, Group CEO of MyRepublic, commented: “People are our most valuable and important asset, so we are delighted to have Deborah join our team and help us continue our journey and commitment to building an innovative and inclusive company, where the best and brightest talent can grow and thrive.” 

Prior to joining MyRepublic, Deborah carries experience in senior HR roles with diverse organisations such as Cisco, Unilever, InterContinental Hotels, and Abbott Laboratories.

Having spent over two decades in the industry, she is armed with global and APAC expertise in building, scaling, and transforming organisations, developing progressive talent strategies, and delivering innovative employee experiences across a wide range of diverse cultures, geographies, and industries.

Commenting on her appointment, Deborah said, “With so much change and disruption in the world of work, the people function has never been more critical to the success of any organisation. Joining a company like MyRepublic with its strong values, bold ambition, and innovative culture is certainly incredibly exciting.”

The CPO appointment comes soon after MyRepublic announced a series of appointments of key executives to the company's core leadership team in early August. These include Jeannie Ong assuming the newly created role of Group Chief Investor Relations Officer (CIRO) and Tun Tun Myint helming the company’s technology operations as its Group Chief Technology Officer (CTO).

Founded in 2011, MyRepublic operates in Singapore, New Zealand, and Australia, while also licensing its platform to operators in Brunei and Indonesia.
