ASM Global APAC is dramatically increasing its footprint in the Asia Pacific region with the announcement of new regional headquarters in Singapore and plans to grow its overall operations in the region.
“We believe that this part of the world is ready for a phase of robust growth, and we’re investing in personnel and plans to ensure we’re at the forefront of a significant growth curve,” ASM Global CEO and president Ron Bension said.
ASM Global Singapore will have a joint leadership team comprising of Paul Sergeant (Executive Vice President, Operations) and Ed Sanderson (Executive Vice President, Venue Development).
The two are expected to take up their roles in Singapore by the end of the year.
ASM Global APAC Chairman and chief executive Harvey Lister said ASM’s under-construction Kai Tak Sports Park in Hong Kong, the Shenzhen World Exhibition and Convention Center and six future arenas confirmed to be managed by ASM Global in the region as examples of the area’s vast potential.
“This is an exciting development and reinforcement of the importance of this region to our organisation and the expansion of our regionally based business activities,” Lister said.
“Having our ASM Global APAC industry professionals like Paul and Ed on the ground will bring a wealth of local knowledge and experience to our operations.”
