Both will join Singtel’s board effective Dec 26, said the firm in Wednesday’s statement.

Mr Horowitz has led the development of consumer products at Google over the past decade, including Gmail, Google Drive, Google Docs, Blogger, Google Voice, Google News and Google Photos. Before joining Google, he was vice-president of advanced development at Yahoo.
He will become a member of Singtel’s finance and investment committee and the technology advisory panel.
Singtel chairman Simon Israel said: “Gail and Bradley bring a wealth of international experience and expertise across a range of areas including technology, innovation, finance and global operations, which will be invaluable as we continue on our transformation journey in a fast-changing business and technology landscape.”
