Chor How Jat has been appointed as Sembcorp Marine’s (SembMarine) chief operating officer (COO) on March 1.

The role was created to oversee the management of operations of the yard as well as the execution of local and overseas projects.

Chor was the COO of Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) prior to the appointment and was serving in that role since 2022.

The proposed combination of SembMarine and Keppel O&M was successfully completed on Feb 28 where Keppel O&M became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the former.

With effect from the closing of the proposed combination, Mark Gainsborough has taken up his role as chairman and independent director of SembMarine’s board of directors. Yap Chee Keong is now deputy chairman and independent director while Chris Ong is the executive director and CEO.

Other directors on the board are Nagi Hamiyeh, Jan Holm and Lai Chung Han.
