"It has been a privilege to lead the StarHub Group for the past three years," Neil shared. "I just turned 60 recently and I think it is the right time for me to retire from a full-time executive role. Moreover, I am leaving StarHub in good hands. Tong Hai and I have worked together for many years and I am confident that I will be turning the helm of StarHub over to yet another seasoned industry executive who can continue steering the Group successfully."
Tan Tong Hai will become the CEO and Executive Director of StarHub in March 2013, subject to regulatory approval. He brings with him over 20 years of experience in the regional information technology, Internet and e-commerce industries and has had broad experience at top management levels.
Tong Hai was previously the President and the CEO of Singapore Computer Systems since August 2005, and the President and the CEO of Pacific Internet from March 2001. He was instrumental in turning both companies around when he was at their helms.
As StarHub's COO, Tong Hai oversees the day-to-day operations of the company and has direct responsibility of the company's Consumer Business Group, Enterprise Business Group, Customer Service, Network Engineering & Information Services, Wholesale & International Services as well as Government & Strategic Affairs divisions.
