Singapore: Container lessor Seaco has made Jeremy Matthew its new group ceo and Paul Merritt as group COO. This follows the announcement of Dave Amble’s retirement as CEO of the HNA owned enterprise.
Jeremy Matthew, the group’s current CFO will take over as CEO with immediate effect and will be supported by Paul Merritt, currently Senior VP Sales, Marketing and Products, who has been elevated to the position of COO.
Bharat Bhise representing the Seaco board, commented, “ When HNA/Bravia aqcuired Seaco in December 2011 we recognised we were also securing an outstanding management team which is why it was such an easy decision to transition leadership from within that team as a consequence of Mr Amble’s retirement. We are confident that Jeremy is the right man to take Seaco forward as we continue with our vision and ambition to become the most valued container lessor by our customers and vendors.”
