SINGAPORE (Dec 19): Charles Choi Spackman, the founder of Spackman Entertainment Group, has resigned as the company’s executive chairman and chief executive officer, with effect from today.

In a filing to SGX on Tuesday, Spackman says the resignation is “part of management restructuring to enable more frontline executives to participate on the Board level for increased efficiency and objectivity.”

As at 4.46pm, shares of Spackman are trading 0.3 cents lower, or down 3.0%, to 9.8 cents.
