New chairman, board members for Sentosa Development Corporation

AMONG other board changes, Bob Tan will take over as chairman of Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC) from April 1, the Ministry of Trade and Industry announced on Wednesday. 

Mr Tan is chairman of the boards of Jurong Engineering, Ascott Residence Trust Management, SINGEX Holdings and the Institute of Technical Education of Singapore.

He is also a board member of the Ong Teng Cheong Labour Leadership Institute, a member of the Monetary Authority of Singapore's corporate governance advisory committee, and a council member of the National Trades Union Congress Club Management Council, as well as a director of Sembcorp Marine, Singapore Post and the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore.

Mr Tan takes over from current SDC chairman Moses Lee, who has been chairman since 2013 and completes his term on March 31. In its announcement, MTI noted that Mr Lee led SDC to play a critical role in expanding its range of events and making the island more accessible by extending free island admission to the local community.

During his term, brands such as Madame Tussauds established operations on Sentosa, and the island hosted events such as the inaugural Trump-Kim summit.
