(Alliance News) - PureCircle Ltd said Friday it has appointed Lim Kian Thong as chief financial officer effective February 1.
The stevia sweetener maker PureCircle said Lim Kian Thong will be based at the company's offices in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and is expected to join the board from February 1, following completion of a handover from the interim chief executive officer James Ritchie.
The company said Lim Kian Thong is a fellow chartered accountant of Singapore and a fellow certified public accountant of Australia with over 27 years of financial and operational management experience.
He has held leadership roles including chief executive officer and executive director of Haitong International Securities Pte Ltd, the company said.
John Slosar, interim chief executive officer, said: "His ability to form clear judgements and to achieve results has been well-tested throughout his career and we look forward to benefiting from his experience."
On Tuesday the company had said that Tan Boon Seng resigned as a non-executive director effective immediately, just over one month since taking up the role, due to personal commitments.
Meanwhile on Friday last week PureCircle had appointed James Ritchie as chief restructuring officer and interim chief financial officer with immediate effect.
PureCircle shares are currently suspended from trading.
