Genting Singapore has appointed Tan Hee Teck as its new CEO and has also made changes to its board committees.
According to Asia Gaming Brief, the 66-year-old Tan has been with the company since 2004 and has held the position of president and chief operating officer since 2010. He started with the Genting Group in 1982 serving in senior corporate and operational roles, and also spent time as COO and executive director of investment brokers DBS Vickers Securities until he returned to Genting in 2004.
The company said Chan Swee Liang has been reappointed as the lead independent director for another three-year term. She will also now lead the nominating committee. Her former slot at the remuneration committee will be filled by Hauw Sze Shiung. Genting Singapore also said that Ong Jinq Her has been appointed as company secretary.
Genting Singapore operates Resorts World Sentosa, one of two integrated resorts (IRs) in Singapore, along with Marina Bay Sands. In 2019, both IRs struck a deal with the government to extend their duopoly to 2030, provided they invest a combined S$9 billion in new amenities.
