THE first-ever election for members of the executive committee (exco) of the Reit Association of Singapore (Reitas) saw the injection of six new faces into the nine-member committee.
Aside from the six new members who join the committee, two new member firms - Suntec Reit and DBS - are also represented on the exco.
Group chief investment officer of Mapletree Investments, Chua Tiow Chye, will remain as president.
New members include vice-president Low Chee Wah, who is chief executive officer (CEO) of Frasers Centrepoint Asset Management, vice-president Yeo See Kiat (CEO, ARA Trust Management (Suntec)), treasurer Chia Nam Toon (CEO and executive director, Ascendas Funds Management), member Eng-Kwok Seat Moey (group head of capital markets, DBS), member Jonathan Quek (managing director, Citigroup Global Markets), and member Vincent Wee (senior vice-president, Group Strategic Investments, CapitaLand).
This was the first election of the exco members since Reitas was registered in late 2013.
The new exco commenced its term in May, and will hold their term until the annual general meeting to be held in 2018.
