Chairman & CEO

East West Bancorp

Dominic Ng is the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of East West Bank. Headquartered in California, East West Bank is a top performing commercial bank with exclusive focus on the U.S. and Greater China. It has been ranked among the 25 largest banks in the U.S. by market capitalization and has been selected in the top 15 of “America’s 100 Best Banks” by Forbes for the last six consecutive years (2010-2015). Mr. Ng currently serves on the board of directors of Mattel, Inc. (NYSE: MAT), and STX Entertainment. In addition, he is a member of the University of Southern California Board of Trustees and Board of Overseers of the Keck School of Medicine, and the Los Angeles Committee of the Berggruen Institute. From 2011 to 2014, he served as Chairman of the Committee of 100, promoting mutual understanding between the U.S. and China and advocating a collaborative partnership between the two countries. From 2005 to 2011, he served on the board of directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, Los Angeles Branch. His previous board service also includes the Anderson School of UCLA, the California State Treasurer’s Financial Institutions Advisory Committee, and the United Way of Greater Los Angeles, among others. Named by Forbes as one of the 25 most notable Chinese Americans and one of the 100 most influential people in Los Angeles by the Los Angeles Times, Mr. Ng was also selected among the top 20 of “2013 U.S.-China Economic and Trade Leaders” by the Sino-U.S. Times, and named by the Los Angeles Business Journal as Business Person of the Year for 2012. In 2016, Mr. Ng received The United Way Alexis de Tocqueville Global Award presented by United Way Worldwide that recognizes his exceptional and sustained engagement and philanthropic leadership. He was also the first Asian American campaign chair for United Way of Greater Los Angeles in 2000. This landmark campaign raised record funds, encouraged Asian Americans to step up and contribute to the communities, and now serves as a model and best practice for the charities around the country. Mr. Ng has been a key leader in bringing Chinese culture and art to major U.S. institutions, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA), The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens, and the Bowers Museum. His vision to bring the best of contemporary Chinese art to a larger audience inspired a groundbreaking collaboration between East West Bank and MOCA that resulted in a dynamic new addition to MOCA’s permanent collection. Mr. Ng is also a frequent speaker on U.S.-China relations, economics, finance, banking and philanthropy, addressing business, political, academic and civic audiences in the U.S. and Greater China, including Boao Forum for Asia, Milken Institute and many others. A Hong Kong native, Mr. Ng holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Houston, an honorary doctor of law degree from Occidental College and an honorary fellowship from Lingnan University in Hong Kong. Prior to taking the helm of East West Bank in 1991, he spent ten years as a Certified Public Accountant with Deloitte & Touche in Houston and Los Angeles.
