Jaryl never thought his opportunity to lead would come after four short years with us, but when the offer to lead a Business Banking team recently presented itself, Jaryl readily stepped up to lead a team of young, energetic team of fresh graduates. As a new Team Manager, Jaryl spends much of his time focused on improving his leadership skills. Through dedicating time to read and reflect on new leadership material and focus on communicating with his team, he works to stay in sync with the young colleagues he leads to guide them towards their own professional breakthroughs in the Business Banking field.
Beyond his profession, Jaryl’s team player attitude fuels his passion as a dragon boater. Besides rowing with OCBC’s Dragon Boat team on the weekends, he ups the challenge by competing in international races. Just this year, he paddled through one of his most memorable races in the rough waters of Hong Kong’s Central Harbourfront - “The unpredictable waters fuelled the adrenaline rush that we were already feeling at the start line, and it’s a feeling that I’ve never felt before in Singapore’s waters.”
So what is it about dragon boating that gets him up and out for training on Saturday mornings? “The camaraderie of the sport and the adrenaline rush from each race pumps me up which is the primary reason I row.” – we’re guessing it’s this camaraderie that has not only kept Jaryl rowing for almost 10 years, but also compelled him to take on the challenge of leading an up-and-coming team within OCBC. #PeopleofOCBC
