HOCK LOCK SIEW

RECENT executive appointments at telcos StarHub and M1 have raised the level of chatter about the industry's so-called "pivot to enterprise"...

AN annual charity exhibition game held last Saturday as part of the M1 Corporate Netball Challenge raised a total of S$50,000 for a good cause.

A CHANGE of guard is afoot at M1, even as the telco goes through a general offer valuing it at S$1.9 billion.

KAREN Kooi, the chief executive of telco M1, will retire next month, after holding the post for nine years.

SPARKS may not be flying, after all, in the marriage between telcos and the newly liberalised energy market.

M1 and Keppel Electric are taking their consumer utilities tie-up islandwide, in tandem with the increased liberalisation of the energy market in Singapore.

M1 has divested its stake in a Singapore-based smart retail solutions associate, as part of a regular investment portfolio review, according to the board of the telco.
