Enterprise Singapore (EnterpriseSG) is undergoing a significant leadership transition, marked by the appointment of Cindy Khoo, as its new Managing Director, effective March 1st. Currently she is serving as the Deputy Secretary of the Strategy Group in the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), 

Khoo’s extensive experience in various government roles, including strategic planning and organizational development, positions her well for this pivotal role. She will succeed Jeffrey Siow, who stepped down from his position on December 31st to assume the role of Second Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Manpower.

“Ms Khoo has demonstrated strong leadership in her current and previous roles, and possesses deep expertise in public-sector governance and processes,” said the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI), adding that she has in-depth knowledge of sustainability and economic issues, drawn from her work at PMO. 

Dr Beh Swan Gin, permanent secretary (development) at MTI, said: “On behalf of MTI, I would like to thank Jeffrey for his leadership at EnterpriseSG, and for his many contributions to the advancement of local enterprises and transformation of key industries.

“I also warmly welcome Cindy. With her extensive experience and achievements in the public sector, I look forward to her leadership in furthering Singapore’s competitiveness and fostering business growth, both locally and on the international stage.”

The leadership transition also includes changes in EnterpriseSG’s board composition, with six new members appointed to the board effective April 1st. This move aligns with EnterpriseSG’s broader strategic objectives aimed at enhancing its engagement with business counterparts and advancing Singapore’s economic interests. Additionally, eight current board members, including prominent figures such as GIC CEO Lim Chow Kiat and Temasek Holdings executive director and CEO Dilhan Pillay Sandrasegara, will step down upon the completion of their terms on March 31st.
