Mr. Kwan is a retired senior partner of the Chinese Services Group of Deloitte LLP. He joined Deloitte in 1978 where he held a number of leadership roles, including National Managing Partner of the Chinese Services Group of Deloitte U.S. and National Managing Partner and Deputy CEO of Deloitte China.

Mr. Kwan has over 30 years of financial advisory and management experience. Since the mid-1980’s, he has been advising U.S., Chinese, and other multinational companies on cross-border investment, including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and other direct foreign investments. He has also assisted large and high-growth Chinese enterprises, both state-owned and privately-held, to achieve sustainable success in the U.S. From 1995 to 2002, he grew Deloitte’s Beijing office from 25 to over 500 professionals and expanded Deloitte China’s national service capabilities to include management consulting and financial advisory services. As a recognized expert on U.S.-China cross-border investment, Mr. Kwan has been quoted in numerous publications, including Businessweek, Financial Times, Fortune, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and others.

"We are pleased that Mr. Kwan has accepted this opportunity to join the East West family," said Dominic Ng, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of East West. "Clarence brings to our Board a deep and diverse understanding of international business and has multi-industry experience, particularly in the U.S. and in China. We look forward to his guidance and influence as we expand our reach as the financial bridge between the East and the West," concluded Ng.
