The departure of the CEO comes a week after independent director Tan Ngiap Siew retired without seeking re-election. Serrano has said that it will look for a replacement.

Trading in Serrano's shares has been suspended since June 2017, after the company and a subsidiary went under schemes of arrangement to restructure group debt.
