Dr Baier will support a handover until 30 June 2016 or earlier.
The Board is looking for a GCEO both internally and externally. As part of the transition plan, with effect from 1 January 2016, Deputy Chairman Mr Goh Yeow Tin will be appointed an Executive Director for a period of 12 months. Mr Goh will oversee the Group’s post-merger integration activities, the business and operations in Singapore. Mr Mervyn Lim, Deputy GCEO (Corporate Services), will cover the work of the GCEO. During this period, SingPost Chairman, Mr Lim Ho Kee will step up his involvement to provide management with more time and guidance over and above the normal oversight of the role as SingPost continues accelerating its transformation – a journey which began more than a decade ago, in the face of declining letter mail volume.
