Paul Ma is the new chairman of Nucleus Connect Pte Ltd (Nucleus Connect), Singapore's Next Gen NBN Operating Company (OpCo).
This was announced at the company's Annual General Meeting on 14 April. Paul Ma succeeds the retiring Ernest Wong who was the Board Chairman.
"The StarHub Board thanks Ernest for his leadership of our subsidiary Nucleus Connect. He has brought Nucleus Connect from launch to a company that is the preferred choice of 25 Retail Service Providers today," StarHub Chairman Tan Guong Ching said. "Nucleus Connect has a firm foundation and it is well prepared to take on the fast increasing demand for fibre broadband in Singapore."
"It is an honour to help shape and lead Singapore's official Next Gen NBN OpCo in its formative years. It is fulfilling to see Nucleus Connect's growth in the past four years, and I'm proud of how the committed and dynamic team has forged ahead despite early challenges," said Wong. "Paul was with me from Day One of the formation of the Nucleus Connect Board, and I have full confidence that he will continue the good work we have done for Nucleus Connect and steer it to greater heights."
Both Wong and Ma are founding members of Nucleus Connect's Board when the StarHub wholly-owned subsidiary was set up in November 2009.
Ma will continue his appointment as Independent Director of Nucleus Connect, concurrently with his new Chairman role, the company said in its statement.
Incorporated on 14 April 2009, Nucleus Connect is responsible for designing, building and operating the active infrastructure of Singapore's Next Generation Nationwide Broadband Network (Next Gen NBN).
