Singapore-based Tiger Airways (TR) has appointed Koay Peng Yen as Group CEO, effective Aug. 10. Koay will replace Chin Yau Seng, who will return to controlling stakeholder Singapore Airlines.
Koay has primarily a shipping background and is former executive director of Pacific Carriers Ltd. and PaxOcean Engineering Group, in the marine and offshore engineering/shipping industries.
"Notwithstanding that he is entering the airline industry for the first time, the board assesses that his proven leadership and strategic skills, capacity for incisive thinking and facility for building cohesive teams are able to propel the Group to greater and sustainable heights," TR chairman J Y Pillay said in a statement.blog comments powered by Disqus
