Wilson Tan resigns from SingPost
Wilson Tan has resigned from his position as group chief executive officer (GCEO) of SingPost. Tan, who is leaving to pursue other opportunities, will step down as director of the SingPost Board.
Since he came on board in October 2007, Tan has stepped up the momentum in SingPost’s transformation from a predominantly postal services provider to a provider of mail, logistics and retail solutions in the region.
Under his leadership, SingPost’s post offices and self-service automated machines (SAM) were given a new lease of life, in particular with the transformation and repurposing of various strategically-located post offices.
Tan’s tenure also saw the acquisition of Quantium Solutions International (formerly known as G3 Worldwide Aspac) and Postea, giving SingPost a ready platform for its regional growth and expansion.
Tan said: “It is gratifying to see SingPost develop from strength to strength and indeed to be part of its exciting transformational journey. The postal and logistics landscape has been evolving in tandem with changes in customers’ lifestyles and SingPost has been adapting and reinventing itself to stay relevant to its customers.”
SingPost has initiated a search for a new GCEO to lead the Group in its next phase of sustainability and growth.
SingPost’s chairman Lim Ho Kee said: “On behalf of the SingPost Board, I wish to register our appreciation to Wilson for his invaluable contributions and leadership, especially under the difficult and challenging environment of the past year. The Board and Management wish him well for his future endeavours.”
