Singapore Airlines Announces Executive Departure
Singapore Airlines (SIA) announced today that Mr Bey Soo Khiang, Senior Executive Vice President for Marketing & Corporate Services, will leave the company with effect from 28 February 2011.
Mr Bey will be departing from SIA after more than 10 years with the airline. He joined as Executive Vice President Technical in July 2000 and was promoted to Senior Executive Vice President Technical & Human Resources in 2002. In 2004 he took over the supervision of Operations and Planning areas, and earlier this year assumed the post of Senior Executive Vice President for Marketing & Corporate Services.
“It is with great regret that we are announcing Soo Khiang’s departure. Since joining Singapore Airlines after an illustrious 26-year career in the Singapore Armed Forces, Soo Khiang has served with great dedication and loyalty. He has made significant contributions towards the development of the company. All of us in Singapore Airlines will miss him, and we wish him the very best in his future endeavours,” said SIA Chairman, Mr Stephen Lee.
“The time is right for me to move on,” said Mr Bey. “I will be leaving knowing that the airline remains in good hands. It is a difficult decision to leave an organisation, particularly a world class one like Singapore Airlines and where I have so many good friends and fond memories. But I have decided to move on to explore new opportunities and challenges.”
Mr Bey will retain oversight of the Marketing & Corporate Services divisions until his departure. Plans for new leadership of these divisions will be finalised in the coming weeks.
