SLA board gets new member


LAW Minister K Shanmugam has appointed Ogilvy & Mather Asia-Pacific co-chairman Tham Khai Meng to the board of the Singapore Land Authority (SLA).


Mr Tham’s two-year board term runs from June 1. He takes over from Hill & Knowlton’s South-east Asia chief executive Jimmy Tay, who retired from the board on May 31.


SLA said in a statement yesterday that Mr Tham is one of the most recognised creative directors in the advertising industry. Advertising Age named him ‘one of the most influential people in the communication business’.


He is also on the board of the Urban Redevelopment Authority.


‘Mr Tham and the existing board members will lead and guide SLA in the discharge of its statutory responsibilities to optimise Singapore’s land resources,’ SLA said.


AMP Capital Investors (Singapore) chairman Greg Seow has been reappointed chairman of SLA’s board. And three other board members have been re-appointed.


SLA is a statutory board under the ministry of law. It is responsible for the management of about 14,000 hectares of state land and 5,000 buildings. It is also in charge of land sales, leases and acquisitions.
