Singapore: Offshore firm Triyards Holdings has announced that it has appointed Chan Eng Yew, 41, to the position of ceo as Wong Bheet Huan, 70, steps down.
The company says the changes are in line with Triyards’ "constant review of its leadership renewal plan” and that Wong will continue to serve as an advisor with responsibility over business advisory functions, and as a non-executive director on the board.
Chan is currently the cfo of Oslo listed EOC Limited, and will take on the new role at Triyards on 1 February 2014. Of note, Chan played a significant role in spearheading EOC’s listing on the main board of the Oslo Stock Exchange in 2007.

I am extremely grateful that he has agreed to remain on the Board of TRIYARDS, so that we can continue to tap on his wealth of experience.
“I would also like to extend my congratulations to Mr Chan on his appointment as TRIYARDS’ CEO. During his career with Ezra and EOC Limited, he remained the driving force in providing strategic oversight on key financing dealings worth more than half a billion dollars for FPSOs. I am excited about the energy that he brings and the Board and I look forward to working with him to deliver optimal results to our shareholders.” [03/02/14]
