    SingPost deputy chairman to resign in June

    SINGAPORE Post deputy chairman Goh Yeow Tin will resign from June 24, becoming the latest board member of the postal carrier to step down.

    Mr Goh, who was appointed in 2014, is stepping down to devote more time to his other commitments, the company said.

    He was made an executive director for a period of 12 months beginning on Jan 1 this year, after then chief executive Wolfgang Baier resigned.

    He was tasked to oversee SingPost's post-merger integration activities, the business and operations in Singapore.

    The resignation is the latest for SingPost which, since Mr Baier's resignation, has been in the spotlight for corporate governance lapses.

    Other SingPost board members who have resigned over the past weeks are former chairman Lim Ho Kee, who quit his post on May 10 and will step down as a director after the annual general meeting in July.

    Former independent director Keith Tay also resigned on May 12.
