KUALA LUMPUR—Supermax Corp. has announced a major organizational restructuring that will see the group introducing the new roles of CEO and chief operating officer.
The senior management rejig is intended to support Supermax's strategic plans to "synergize" its operations across Malaysia and the U.S., the latex gloves maker said in a Dec. 18 statement.
Effective Jan. 2, 2024, Tan Chee Keong will be appointed as senior executive director and CEO, taking over the bulk of responsibilities from Dato' Seri Stanley Thai, founder and executive chairman of the Malaysian group.
