APL President Eng Aik Meng is said to be leaving to take a new position outside the transportation industry.
When he leaves the company on 1 September 2011, Mr Eng will be replaced by NOL’s North Asia Region President Kenneth Glenn.
The outgoing APL President joined the company in 1993, holding positions in Strategic Planning and as head of its Intra-Asia Trade. He left in 2007, but returned in 2008 as President of APL.
When Mr Glenn takes over, he will manage APL's worldwide container transportation business, which includes shipping and intermodal rail operations. He will also have accountability for the company's marine terminals in the U.S., Asia and Europe.
A 32-year industry veteran, Mr Glenn joined APL in 2000. He was the company's top executive in India when it introduced that country's first private freight-rail business, IndiaLinx, in 2007. Since January 2009, he has been North Asia President. Mr. Glenn was the Senior Vice President in charge of APL's Asia-Europe Trade from 2000 to 2005.
Transition will begin in the next few weeks.
