StarHub names Terry Clontz as new chairman
StarHub announced the retirement of its chairman and non-executive director, Tan Guong Ching, on Monday. Mr Tan will be succeeded by Terry Clontz who is currently a non-executive director on the StarHub board. Mr Clontz will take on the role of chairman and non-executive director from Wednesday.
Mr Tan was first appointed to the board on Aug 8, 1998 and became the non-executive chairman of StarHub on Apr 1, 2001.
Said Mr Tan: "I am pleased to pass the baton over to Terry whom my fellow board of directors and I have worked with for the past 14 years or so. He is a familiar face not only to the board, but also to our shareholders, employees and customers. I am assured that I am passing the chairmanship to a safe and trusted pair of hands to bring StarHub into its next stage of growth."
Mr Clontz is a well-regarded veteran in the telecommunications and media industry with 42 years of experience. During his 11 years at the helm of StarHub, he led the company during a number of major milestones including the transformation of StarHub from being Singapore's third mobile player in 2000 to a fully-integrated quad-play service provider; merging StarHub with Singapore Cable Vision in 2002; taking StarHub public in 2004 to the main board of the Singapore Exchange; and advancing StarHub's market position to become Singapore's second largest mobile operator in 2005, the same year that it became profitable.
