NKF names new CEO
THE National Kidney Foundation (NKF) on Wednesday announced the appointment of Tim Oei, 58, as chief executive officer with effect from Sept 4.
He is currently the CEO of AWWA, a local non-profit organisation that provides community-based programmes and services to a range of demographics from children to the elderly.
NKF said that a five-member board search committee reviewed more than 50 candidates over five months to arrive at the final selection.
Chairman Koh Poh Tiong said: "Mr Oei's vast experience in the voluntary welfare sector will help bring the NKF into a new phase of development, carrying out the foundation's mission of serving the needs of needy kidney patients in Singapore."
Last November, NKF terminated former CEO Edmund Kwok over a "personal indiscretion" involving a male staff member which had nothing to do with the stewardship of the foundation's finances.
