YTL Pacific Star, the manager of Singapore-listed Starhill Global REIT, has appointed Mr Ho Sing as its new CEO.
43-year-old Ho takes over the top post from Franklin Heng, who died last December from complications following liposuction surgery.
YTL said it is confident that Mr Ho will be able to execute his duties as CEO due to his experience and expertise.
Mr Ho was previously the general manager of International Investment at Guocoland.
He will also take on the role of executive director at YTL Pacific Star.
His previous directorship experience included his role as an independent director of UMS Holdings from 1 December 2006 to 7 July 2008, where he was the chairman of the Remuneration Committee.
At YTL, Mr Ho will oversee a growing list of assets in Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, China and Japan – estimated to be around S$2.5 billion.
This includes a 74.2-per-cent stake in Wisma Atria and a 27.2-per-cent share of the adjacent Ngee Ann City.
