Jen Teo Pui Heng, former senior vice-president of Great Eastern Insurance, has been named the new executive director of the Singapore Environment Council (SEC), effective March 27, 2017.
Edwin Seah, Teo’s predecessor, was suspended in October 2016, before he was terminated in November. Seah told Channel NewsAsia that the organisation terminated him because they did not see him as a good fit for the post.
When Teo was still with Great Eastern, she was in charge of a team focused on business transformation and improvement. Previously, she had worked for American Express, handling responsibilities across the Asia-Pacific region.
