Changi Airport Group’s chairman steps down
Liew Mun Leong has stepped down as chairman and board director of the Changi Airport Group (CAG) with immediate effect. Liew was the founding chairman of CAG following the company’s formation in 2009.
Liew played a pivotal role in the corporatisation of Changi Airport, which paved the way for Changi to operate more flexibly to meet the challenges of a competitive aviation environment.
Under his leadership, CAG achieved a very strong first decade since 2009, which saw passenger traffic at Changi rising 84 percent and the group’s revenue more than doubling. During this period, CAG also pushed the boundaries in airport development. Liew provided stewardship and strategic counsel on three landmark projects simultaneously, namely Terminal 4, Jewel Changi Airport and Changi East.
Lee Seow Hiang, CAG’s chief executive officer, said, “Liew’s vision and passion for Changi was an inspiration to the people of CAG and the airport community to always strive for excellence to deliver an exceptional Changi Experience. The result has been Changi Airport being recognised as the world’s most awarded airport.
“We are truly appreciative of Liew’s dedication to growing Changi Airport over the years and to securing Singapore’s position as a major aviation hub. We wish him good health and the very best for his future.”
