Catholic High Old Boys Hold Senior Positions at PSA International

Port operator PSA International recently reshuffled several senior management positions. Two of those affected are old boys of Catholic High. There are David Yang ( 杨勃 see picture) and Kuah Boon Wee (柯文伟 Sec 4, 1982 )

The head of PSA's European operations, Mr Pierre Timmermans, has stepped down with immediate effect and will leave the company at the end of the month - for reasons not specified.

Mr David Yang, PSA's head of the Middle East and South Asia, will now move to run the Europe and Mediterranean operations based in Antwerp.

The current chief executive of Singapore and South-east Asia, Mr Kuah Boon Wee, will, in turn, head the Middle East and South Asia operations. He is being replaced by current Singapore terminals chief operating officer Tan Puay Hin.

Head of group business development, Mr Kenny Ong, will take on a larger portfolio in becoming CEO of the Americas, heading the company's operations in Panama and Buenos Aires from Singapore.

These top executives are all part of PSA's eight-member senior management council headed by group CEO Eddie Teh.

Here is a brief introduction of Kuah Boon Wee (see picture).

Kuah Boon Wee is currently the CEO of PSA Southeast Asia & Singapore Terminals. He has overall responsibility and accountability for Singapore Terminals as well as the PSA Group's portfolio of operating terminals, investments and expansion in the ASEAN region. He also sits on the Senior Management Council (SMC) of PSA International (PSAI).

Boon Wee has worked in senior management positions in Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia and has a proven track record of corporate achievements.

Before his current position, he was the Group Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of PSAI. As Group CFO, he was responsible for the Group’s world-wide finance functions, including Financial Management, Treasury, Risk Management and Corporate Secretariat. He joined PSA Group in March 2004.

Prior to PSAI, he was the CFO for Singapore Technologies Engineering, a major listed company on the Singapore Stock Exchange. In his position as CFO, he played a key role in steering the company towards best practices in corporate transparency and quality reporting.
