About the Speaker

His Excellency Yoon Suk Heun, Governor of Financial Supervisory Service

Yoon Suk Heun was appointed the thirteenth Governor of the Financial Supervisory Service by the President on May 4, 2018, after he was nominated for the post by the Chairman of the Financial Services Commission as provided for under article 29 of the Act on the Establishment of the Financial Services Commission. He serves a three-year term that may be renewed once.

After six years of work at the Bank of Korea from 1971 to 1977, Mr. Yoon took a faculty position at McGill University in Canada as an associate professor in 1983 just before he earned a Ph.D. in business administration the following year and taught at McGill until 1991. Upon his return to Korea, Mr. Yoon worked as a senior research fellow at the Korea Institute of Finance until 1997 and joined the faculty of the Department of Finance at Hallym University the following year. In 2010, he assumed a teaching position at the School of Finance, Soongsil University, and in 2016 at the College of Business Administration, Seoul National University, as a visiting professor.

Throughout his academic career, Mr. Yoon actively contributed to public policy endeavors in various capacities, including the president of Korean Finance Association in 2002 and the president of Korea Money & Finance from 2005 to 2006 and a member of the National Economic Advisory Council to the President from 2010 to 2011. Immediately prior to his appointment for Governor, he also served as the chairman of both the Financial Administration Reforms Committee and the Financial Development Review Committee directly under the Financial Services Commission.

Mr. Yoon earned a B.A. in business administration from Seoul National University in 1971, an M.B.A. from Santa Clara University in 1979, and a Ph.D. in business administration from Northwestern University in 1984.
