SINGAPORE: Singapore investment company Temasek Holdings has announced three additions to its board, increasing the number to 13. Mr Robert Ng Chee Siong and Mr Bobby Chin Yoke Choong will join the Temasek Board with effect from 10 June 2014, while Mr Peter Robert Voser will take up his appointment on 1 January 2015.

The three new appointments would add to the depth and breadth of the Temasek Board, Chairman Lim Boon Heng said in a statement on Monday (June 9).

"They are all experienced business builders and corporate leaders in regional and international arenas, who will add depth and useful perspectives to our board deliberations," he said.

Mr Ng is currently chairman of the Hong Kong-based Sino Group, a property giant whose assets include the Fullerton Hotel in Singapore. He is also vice chairman of M+S Pte Ltd, where he played a key role in spearheading the real estate joint-venture initiative between Malaysia's Khazanah Nasional and Temasek.

Mr Chin is a retired managing partner of KPMG Singapore. His public service appointments include chairman of the MediShield Life Review Committee and member of the Council of Presidential Advisers.

Mr Voser, a Swiss national, is a veteran of the energy industry. He retired as chief executive officer of Royal Dutch Shell in December last year.
