Leadership reshuffle at Keppel Land

SINGAPORE - Keppel Land has named new heads for various business segments in a leadership reshuffle.

Its Singapore operations, comprising the residential and commercial business segments, will be consolidated into one unit and headed by Mr Tan Swee Yiow, who will assume the role of president (Singapore).

Mr Tan, 51, will relinquish his existing overseas portfolio, comprising Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Myanmar, to focus on the Singapore market.

Mr Tan started his career at Keppel Land in 1990.

He is also a director at several subsidiaries and associated companies of the Keppel Land Group.

Mr Ng Ooi Hooi, 52, who is general manager (regional head) at Keppel Land China, will be appointed president of regional investments to oversee the company's businesses in India, the Middle East, Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia and Sri Lanka.

Mr Ng joined Keppel in 2007 and has held senior appointments at Keppel Land.

Mr Sam Moon Thong, 47, now the president of Keppel Land's Indonesia and Malaysia businesses, will relinquish his Malaysia portfolio to focus on Indonesia, a growth market for Keppel Land.

He will be redesignated as president (Indonesia).

Mr Lim Kei Hin, 55, who is currently the company's chief financial officer, will also oversee investor relations and research in addition to finance and information technology.

All the new appointments will take effect at the start of next year.

Mr Ho Cheok Kong, 56, will continue in his current role as president of Keppel Land China while Mr Linson Lim, 51, will remain the president of the Vietnam and Philippines businesses.

Keppel also said last month that Mr Ang Wee Gee will succeed Mr Kevin Wong as Keppel Land chief executive in January.
