Changi Airport Group has appointed Lim Liang Song as chief executive officer of Changi Airports International (CAI) with effect from May 3rd 2011.

A wholly-owned subsidiary, CAI is the international arm of CAG focused on airport-related equity investments and management consultancy projects around the world.

He takes over from Wong Woon Liong, who will continue to be a member of the Changi Airport Advisory Group (CAAG).

Prior to joining Indigo Partners in 2005, Mr Lim held various management positions at Singapore Airlines.

In his last role as vice president, company planning, he was responsible for the airline’s corporate planning activities, including merger and acquisition strategies, fleet planning, fuel procurement and hedging.

“I am excited by the challenge that this opportunity presents,” said Mr Lim. “Changi has an outstanding track record of excellence and is a world-renowned name in aviation.

“I look forward to working with the CAI and CAG teams to leverage Changi’s expertise and experience to expand the group’s international presence.”
