The move comes with a new batch of hires for the commercial cluster.
ST Engineering appointed Tan Lee Chew as President Commercial and member of the Group Executive Committee, effective on 1 September, a news release dated 31 August revealed.
Chew’s main responsibilities lie with overseeing the growth of the commercial cluster, which includes commercial aerospace, urban solutions, and satellite communications.

Previous job experience also includes her stay at Hewlett-Packard Enterprise in Palo Alto, California, for more than 20 years, where she last served as senior vice president of global hybrid IT sales and category management.
Group President and CEO Vincent Chong saw this as a way of strengthening the team based on her international experience.
“The appointment of Lee Chew will strengthen our management team to drive further global success. Lee Chew brings with her significant global experience having spent 30 years in multinational companies in the technology sector, holding senior positions including roles with regional and global responsibilities in sales and marketing, and business transformation.”
Chew’s appointment accompanies several newly hired positions of the ST Engineering senior leadership team, as well. Cheryl Chan will be joining as group chief strategy and sustainability officer; whilst Low Ka Hoe will serve as the incoming president, Satellite Communications. Lim Kok Ann, meanwhile, would take the position of president, Land Systems. All new positions would take effect on 1 September.
Chew will be replacing Lim Serh Ghee, who will instead remain as the group's chief operating officer and member of the Group Executive Committee until his retirement on 30 October. Ghee was originally with the company’s aerospace business since 1984 and was president of the Aerospace sector from 2014 to 2020.
