Hor Weng Yew, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer of Pacific Carriers Limited (PCL) has been appointed the new Chairman of the Singapore Maritime Foundation (SMF).

Hor takes over from Andreas Sohmen-Pao, Chairman of BW Group, who served three, two-year terms as SMF Chairman. SMF promotes Singapore as an international maritime centre and maritime locally as a career choice for both students and those looking to make a mid-career switch.

“I would like to congratulate Weng Yew on his appointment as the in-coming Chairman of SMF. He brings deep and diverse experience across the industry accumulated over three decades. I am confident that Weng Yew will bring insights and leadership to the Board,” said Niam Chiang Meng, Chairman of the Maritime & Port Authority of Singapore (MPA).

Joining Hor as newly appointed members on the Board of SMF are; Cyril Ducau, Chief Executive Officer, Eastern Pacific Shipping; John Martin, Chief Executive Officer: Gard Singapore; Angeline Teo, Managing Director & Head, Global Transportation & Offshore, OCBC Bank; and Lars Kastrup, Co-President & Executive Director, Pacific International Lines (PIL).

“I also warmly welcome Cyril, John, Angeline and Lars to the SMF Board and thank them for availing of their expertise and experience,” said Niam.

“I would like to put on record my deep appreciation to Andreas for his strong leadership and dedication to furthering the work of SMF. During his tenure as Chairman, Andreas spearheaded several key initiatives—the most recent of which was co-chairing the International Advisory Panel on Maritime Decarbonisation, which submitted its report to the Singapore Government in April 2021.”
