Mr Loh Hock Chiang, Interim Group Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and Chief Financial Officer of ATech, said, “We are still grieving the passing of our co-founder and CEO, late Mr Lee Chong Yeow @ Lee Chong Yan (“Mr Lee”) but we know that he would want us to continue with the plans for the business. We started our succession planning several years back looking for individuals with the right experience and fit for the role. We welcome Michael’s return to the BCM and ATech family and we are sure that his vast experience will add strength to the management team while fulfilling a key position in the operations of the business.”
Michael said, “I would like to express my appreciation to Mr Loh and the late Mr Lee for their confidence in me to re-join ATech. I will endeavour to bring ATech in achieving higher operational efficiency by working closely with the management team as ATech plans its next phase of growth and expansion.”
