EZRA Holdings said its group chief financial officer has resigned and would be replaced in the interim by the chief executive of its yard operating subsidiary, Triyards Holdings.

Chan Eng Yew, 43, will stand in as interim CFO with effect from Jan 27 after Eugene Cheng, 38, steps down.

Mr Cheng has resigned from the position due to personal and family reasons, Ezra said in an SGX filing, adding that Mr Chan's appointment has been approved by the group's board of directors.

Mr Chan started his career with Ezra in 2003 prior to joining Triyards. At Ezra, he held the position of assistant general manager for corporate finance and was subsequently appointed as the chief executive of EOC Limited in 2007. He played an instrumental role in the positioning of EOC as the first Singapore company to be listed on the main board of the Oslo stock exchange. In 2014, he took over the helm as the chief executive of Triyards.

As the interim CFO, he will be responsible for all financial matters relating to the group, including financial reporting, strategic financial planning and treasury.
