Singapore’s Casino Regulatory Authority has promoted Deputy Chairman Tan Tee How to chairman, taking over from Lee Tzu Yang from April 2.
“I would like to thank Mr Lee Tzu Yang for his valuable contributions to CRA over the past three years,” K Shanmugam, Minister for Home Affairs and Minister for Law, said in a statement.
“He had guided CRA in its efforts to further strengthen Singapore’s casino regulatory regime and forge closer ties with international partners. Under his leadership, CRA has enhanced its standing as an effective and robust regulator,” it said.
Lee worked in Shell in Singapore for over 35 years, rising to be its chairman, and chaired the Workplace Safety and Health Council for eight years since 2008. The council said he was instrumental in raising workplace safety and health standards.
Tan is a career civil servant and became commissioner and CEO of the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore in 2014. Other key posts included Controller of Immigration and principal private secretary to then Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong.
