Chang takes helm at ST Marine
Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd (ST Engineering) today announced that Mr. Chang Cheow Teck, currently President, Special Projects in ST Engineering, will be appointed President of ST Marine with effect from March 1, 2008.
ST Marine is the parent of VT Halter Marine, Inc.
Mr. Chang succeeds Mr. See Leong Teck who will retire on 29 February 2008 after 28 years of service with the Group.
Mr. Chang has been with the Group since 1990 and before assuming his current position, had held various senior management appointments within the Group including that of EVP Commercial Business, ST Aerospace; President, VT Systems Inc.; and President Defence Business, ST Kinetics.
As President Special Projects, Mr. Chang has been closely involved in identifying growth opportunities for the Group resulting in several acquisitions.
Mr. Chang graduated in 1985 with a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering degree with honours from the National University of Singapore and attended the Harvard University's Management Development Program. He is married with 2 children.
Mr. See joined the Group in 1980 and has been President of ST Marine, the marine arm of ST Engineering since December 1997. A naval architect by training, he is credited with developing a strong in-house design capability which today distinguishes ST Marine from its competition. He was also instrumental in growing ST Marine's business over the last few years.
"I am confident that Cheow Teck is more than ready to lead ST Marine," said Mr. Tan Pheng Hock President and CEO, ST Engineering. "We want to thank Leong Teck for his invaluable contributions to ST Marine and ST Engineering. He has developed both ST Marine and VT Halter Marine over the last few years to be reputable yards known for the design and construction of sophisticated naval ships and commercial vessels that meet the exacting standards of international customers."
