16 April 2013



limseokhuiThe Chairman and Board of Directors of Singapore International Arbitration Centre ("SIAC") wish to announce that Ms Lim Seok Hui has been appointed to the position of Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) of the arbitration centre commencing 1 June 2013. Ms Lim will succeed the current CEO, Minn Naing Oo, who will return to private practice.

Ms Lim, who will be in overall charge of the corporate management and business development activities of SIAC, is a seasoned lawyer. She was most recently Senior Vice-President and General Counsel of Marina Bay Sands. Prior to that, she was Group Company Secretary and Group General Counsel of Guoco Leisure Limited (a Singapore-listed member of the Hong Leong group) in Singapore. She has worked in Hong Kong and Singapore as a corporate, securities and M&A lawyer in private practice with various international firms including Baker & McKenzie and in-house with Arthur Andersen. She qualified as a Barrister and is also admitted as a solicitor in Singapore, Hong Kong and England & Wales.

"I am very grateful to the SIAC Board, for appointing me as the CEO of such a thriving institution. I am eager to begin working with the SIAC team and look forward to guiding the centre through its next stage of growth and development." said Ms Lim.

Chairman of the SIAC Board, Mr Lucien Wong said, "I am delighted that Seok Hui, who is a first class candidate, has agreed to take over the post as CEO, as SIAC enjoys another dynamic year of growth. Her practical experience in private practice and as head of various in-house legal teams working across so many global jurisdictions will be of tremendous benefit to SIAC and to all our users. She will be a worthy successor to Minn, who has steered SIAC through four years of record breaking growth and development. During his tenure as CEO, SIAC's case load has more than doubled and it has matured into one of the world's premier arbitration institutions."

In 2012, SIAC handled 235 new cases and managed over 500 arbitrations and in May 2013, will open its first overseas office in Mumbai.
