Based in Singapore and reporting into Belinda Hindmarsh, SVP, head of global market management and development, Hwang will be responsible for ensuring customer expectations are met within the region, while steering the CWT APAC business forward and leading local expansion.
Hindmarsh commented: “CWT’s GMD goal is to continually improve and accelerate our efforts in delivering world class client partnerships, support and service. I’m looking forward to Cheng Meng joining the APAC Leadership team, as he brings with him a wealth of experience and skills from a broad set of industries, making him uniquely suited for this role.”
