- Sees high potential in ACROMETA's controlled environments engineering business
- Aims to let investors better understand ACROMETA's business and optimize its market value
SINGAPORE, Feb 1, 2023 - (ACN Newswire) - ACROMETA Group Limited [SGX: 1CH1] today announced that with effect from 30 January 2023, it has appointed Mr Levin Lee Keng Weng as Executive Chairman and Director of the Board. Mr Lee brings with him a wealth of experience in business and an enviable track record in investing.
On the appointment of Levin as Executive Chairman, ACROMETA Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director Mr Lim Say Chin said, "Levin's experience, business network and financial resources will be beneficial to ACROMETA as we advance to capture growth opportunities in our controlled environments engineering business. He has an enviable track record in helping companies strategize to be future-ready and bring about optimization of their market valuation."
Mr Levin Lee said, "SMEs in Singapore with good potential are often neglected by investors who do not understand their business. As a result, such small caps are often overlooked and thus hampered in their operations through a lack of financial resources and a good business strategy. My role is not only to help ACROMETA in its business strategy and financials, but also to let the investing public understand the company's business and potential. The controlled environments engineering business is truly a future-ready business as the R&D and production processes of many industries in the future economy such as biotechnology, semi-conductors and renewable energy take place in controlled environments."
The appointment of Mr Lee as Executive Chairman is in accordance with corporate governance best practice that the post of Chief Executive Officer should be separate from that of Chairman of the Board.
