Saw Phaik Hwa named CEO of bread maker

No more dabbling in transport operations for outgoing SMRT chief Saw Phaik Hwa.

57-year-old Saw will join Auric Pacific, a diversified unit of Indonesian conglomerate Lippo Group, as its CEO on 1 May. The firm owns the franchise for Delifrance and makes Sunshine bread.

Saw was thrown in the spotlight last December following two massive rail breakdowns of the North-South Line that affected about 200,000 commuters. The public uproar over it prompted a government-appointed committee of inquiry, which will begin its hearing on 16 April.

Saw resigned after three weeks on 6 January.

Before joining transport operator SMRT nine years ago, she previously served as president for DFS Venture Singapore (Pte) Ltd., in charge of businesses in Singapore, Indonesia, and Malaysia. She was with DFS for almost 19 years.
