Semple was one of the founding partners of SHP Associates, where she built and ran the financial services department.

In her new role at Eban, Semple will report to Emma Weir, global managing partner of Eban International, and will liase with Eban's offices in Hong Kong, Tokyo and Singapore and the firm's affiliates in New York and Sydney.
