A new President has been elected to lead the Australian Chamber of Commerce in Singapore, following Ian Cummin’s decision to step aside from the role.
Adam Lyle has now been appointed by the Board to serve as President, following his long service as Vice President of the Chamber. Ian welcomed Adam to the role and said he was confident the Chamber would continue to grow under his leadership.
“Adam has served on the Board for 10 years and has been Vice President since 2014. He has been an active member of the Chamber for many years and an important representative on the Board. I am confident he will continue to be a strong advocate for the Australian Business community in Singapore and support for the AustCham membership.”
“I am stepping down as President of AustCham Singapore in the knowledge that the Chamber is in great shape, with solid member and sponsor support.”
“We have bounced back from a recent membership low in 2017 to a current record high and the AustCham board’s own renewal process is on track with Leonie Muldoon from Austrade, Chris Coburn from Treasury Wines and Amber Williams from NS BlueScope the most recent appointments.”
Ian will remain as a board member as the Chamber continues the process of transition to a renewed board. However he will not be standing for re-election in light of plans to relocate back to Australia. Adam Lyle thanked Ian and the Board for their support.
“It is an honour to accept the role of President. I am proud to be associated with AustCham, it is an incredibly successful chamber with a hard-working team,” he said.
“As we look forward to the 2019/20 year for the Chamber I anticipate it will be another year of renewal and growth for the organisation. I am looking forward to being a part of this change and leading AustCham through the time of transition.”
“I look forward to serving the AustCham members as President.”
