SINGAPORE: Mr Toh Han Li will be appointed as the new CEO of the Competition Commission of Singapore (CCS) from October 1. He will take over from Ms Yena Lim, who will be stepping down when her term ends on September 30.
Mr Toh Han Li, a legal service officer, is currently the assistant CEO for Legal and Enforcement at the commission.
A statement from the Trade and Industry Ministry said during his term, both the Competition Bar and Competition Law jurisprudence developed significantly with major legal precedents being established in the area of anticompetitive agreements, abuse of dominance and financial penalties.
Mr Toh has also represented the commission as its counsel in every appeal before the Competition Appeal Board.
The ministry also extended its appreciation to Ms Yena Lim for her many contributions.
Mr Ng How Yue, second permanent secretary for MTI, said: "Under Yena's leadership, CCS has developed a stronger and more robust competition regime for Singapore.
"Yena has also taken a proactive and strategic approach in business outreach to encourage voluntary compliance among businesses. We would like to extend Yena our best wishes in her future endeavours."
Mr Ng added: "Han Li is no stranger to CCS, having led the legal and enforcement division of CCS as its assistant chief executive since 2009. He has helped to refine Singapore's legal framework and guidelines pertaining to the Competition Act. I look forward to working closely with Han Li as the next CEO of CCS."
Mr Lam Chuan Leong, chairman of CCS, said: "As the CEO, Yena has steered CCS successfully through some of its most challenging cases so far, as well as raised CCS's profile both regionally and internationally in the competition arena. Together with rest of the commission members, I wish Yena all the best in her next posting."
