"Mr. Tai brings to the Lilly board extensive experience in international business and finance, including serving as the CEO of a major multinational financial institution and as a board member of several leading global companies. Having lived and worked in Japan and Singapore for almost 15 years, Jack has a deep understanding of the Asia-Pacific region that will be particularly helpful as our business in Asia continues to grow."

Prior to his appointment at DBS, Tai was an investment banker for 25 years with J.P. Morgan & Co. Incorporated.  Among his assignments at J.P. Morgan, Tai was senior regional officer and head of investment banking for Asia Pacific, based in Tokyo; founder and global head of real estate investment banking, based in New York; senior regional officer and head of investment banking for the Western United States, based in San Francisco; and executive director of J.P.

He is a member of the Harvard China Advisory Group and the Harvard Business School Asia-Pacific Advisory Board.  He is also a director of privately-held Russell Reynolds Associates and Brookstone, Inc.
