PacNet chief resigns to join SCS

PacNet chief Tan Tong Hai resigns and joins Singapore Computer Systems as its new CEO, leaving the ISP in search for a new head.

SINGAPORE--Pacific Internet head honcho Tan Tong Hai will take up the CEO post at Singapore Computer Systems tomorrow.

The 17-year industry veteran has been appointed as SCS' new president and CEO after an "extensive and rigorous" three-month search, SCS said in a statement released this morning.

Don Ramble, director of SCS' member-of-search committee and Exco, said: "We have seen several impressive candidates and employed various selection methods. We started with 30 candidates and eventually narrowed to six. Tong Hai was selected from a final shortlist of three candidates."

Tan joined PacNet in March 2001, and has been credited with turning around the Nasdaq-listed ISP and building up PacNet's overseas operations.

Before his four-and-a-half years at PacNet, Tan worked at StarHub Internet and IBM.

PacNet announced in a separate statement that it has commissioned a search for a new CEO and will appoint Kevin Lim, its senior vice-president of general business and group marketing, as head of the company's Singapore operations.
