Tina Yim-Cheung


Tina Yim-Cheung is a vice president on SVB’s Global Gateway team. Based in the Bay Area, she’s a trusted partner to technology startup clients in emerging markets such as Brazil, United Arab Emirates, Australia and New Zealand. With a deep understanding of the unique challenges that come with global operations, Tina acts as the primary point of contact for the founders she serves; she thrives on hearing about each client’s unique journey and then providing them with the mentoring, connections and global banking solutions they need to scale to the next level. Tina also enjoys steering clients toward success via the webinars and workshops hosted by SVB.

Tina brings more than 15 years of experience to her role. She first began working for SVB’s Global Gateway in 2014 as a client advisory services manager. During this time, she oversaw a team of relationship advisors that served venture capital funds and technology companies. Tina has also served as a relationship advisor supervisor on the Accelerator and Growth team. Tina first joined SVB in 2008 as a client service advisor supervisor, managing the bank’s technical support teams in the Bay Area and Broomfield, Colorado. Prior to joining SVB, Tina launched her career in banking at KeyPoint Credit Union in Santa Clara, where she served in a variety of operational and client-facing roles. Tina holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the Anderson School of Management at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque.

As a volunteer, Tina has mentored students through Genesys Works, a nonprofit that provides pathways to career success for high school students in underserved communities. She has also volunteered for Year Up, an organization dedicated to helping young adults gain the skills, experience and support that will empower them to reach their potential.

The eldest of five daughters in her family, Tina now has two daughters herself. And while Tina’s workday entails teaching clients fast ways to move forward, in her free time, Tina and her daughters have learned a fun way to move forward: They’ve taken up roller skating together.
