Trafigura Group Pte Ltd, a market leader in the global commodities industry, has appointed Chin Hwee Tan as the Chief Executive Officer for Asia-Pacific. He will be responsible for continuing the growth of Trafigura’s business across the region and will be based in the company’s Singapore office.
Jeremy Weir, Chief Executive Officer for Trafigura said: “We are delighted that Chin Hwee has accepted the role, bringing a wealth of experience which will be extremely valuable in driving our future growth across Asia-Pacific.”
Chin Hwee Tan brings two decades of experience in management and financial roles, most recently as the founder of the Asian operations of Apollo Global Management LLC, a global alternative investor with over US$185 billion in assets under management. Before joining Apollo, Chin Hwee was a Managing Director at Amaranth Advisors LLC, an American multi-strategy hedge fund responsible for identifying and evaluating public and private investment opportunities across the capital structure across Asia.
Chin Hwee said: “Much as I had wanted to slow the tempo following an eventful career in investment management, the opportunity to be an integral part of a team who holds a pivotal position in a dynamic sector both in Singapore and globally was compelling.”
