THE Ministry of Transport (MOT) on Friday said that Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew has appointed four new members to the Maritime Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) board.
The new members are Carl Krogh Arnet, chief executive officer, BW Offshore; Luke Goh, senior director, PS21 Office, Public Service Division, Prime Minister's Office and institute director (Institute of Governance and Policy), Civil Service College; Kam Soon Huat, general secretary and chief operating officer, Singapore Organisation of Seamen; and Quek Bin Hwee, vice-chairman (Markets and Industries), Asia Pacific Clients and Markets Leader, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP.
Their appointments will be for a period of three years and will take effect from Feb 2, save for Mrs Quek, who according to MOT, will serve as board member from April 1, 2015, to Feb 1, 2018.
Jude Benny, senior partner at Joseph Tan Jude Benny and a current board member of MPA, will have his appointment extended to March 31, so as to facilitate closure of the MPA 2014 Annual Accounts and a smooth handover of the chairmanship of the Audit Review Committee.
Meanwhile, the following board members will be stepping down on Feb 2: Thomas Tay, emeritus general secretary, Singapore Maritime Officers' Union; James Wong, deputy secretary (Policy), Public Service Division, Prime Minister's Office; and Robert Yap, executive chairman, YCH Group.
