SIAC Announces Appointment of New Registrar and Promotion of Deputy Registrar
The Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) is pleased to announce the appointment of Ms Delphine Ho as Registrar of SIAC with effect from 20 May 2016, and the promotion of its Deputy Registrar, Mr Kevin Nash, to Deputy Registrar and Centre Director, effective 1 May 2016. Ms Ho will succeed the former Registrar, Ms Tan Ai Leen, who has moved to an in-house role.
Ms Ho graduated from the National University of Singapore, and is qualified both as an advocate and solicitor in Singapore and as a solicitor in England and Wales. Ms Ho was previously in private practice with leading Singapore local firms, where her areas of practice included international and domestic arbitrations, cross-border commercial disputes, and building and construction as well as company and shareholder matters. Prior to joining SIAC, she was in public service as an Assistant Registrar of the Supreme Court of Singapore.
As Registrar, Ms Ho will oversee the SIAC Secretariat in the provision of case management services. In addition, under the International Arbitration Act, she will be the statutory authority for taxation of costs.
Mr Nash is currently the Acting Registrar of SIAC during the interim period prior to Ms Ho’s commencement as Registrar. Following his promotion to Deputy Registrar and Centre Director, Mr Nash will assume additional responsibilities in business development and the recruitment and professional development of counsel in the SIAC Secretariat.
Mr Gary Born, President of the SIAC Court of Arbitration, commented, “The addition of Ms Ho and promotion of Mr Nash reflect the continuing growth of SIAC’s caseload and our commitment to providing the highest standard of efficient, professional case management for international arbitrations.”
Ms Lim Seok Hui, CEO of SIAC and the Singapore International Mediation Centre, said, “We are delighted to welcome Delphine, an experienced arbitration practitioner who has worked in both the private and public sectors, to the SIAC team, and warmly congratulate Kevin on his well-deserved promotion, which is a timely acknowledgement of his hard work, commitment and efforts since joining SIAC in 2012. We look forward to working closely together with the SIAC Board of Directors and SIAC Court of Arbitration to consolidate our position at the forefront of institutional arbitration by continuing to focus on delivering world-class dispute resolution services to users in the international arbitration community.”
