APL has appointed a new Managing Director for its Philippine operations. From February 2004, Maurice McKeating will oversee all aspects of APL’s business in the Philippines from the company’s regional headquarters in Manila.
McKeating was most recently Country Manager for APL in Sri Lanka. Since joining APL’s parent company, Singapore-based Neptune Orient Lines (NOL) as a graduate trainee in 1990, McKeating has filled various positions, including two years with APL’s Intra-Asia services team. He also spent three years in senior sales and marketing roles in Bangladesh, before his promotion to lead APL’s Sri Lankan operation. APL President for Asia and the Middle East, Brian Lutt, said, “Maurice’s excellent track record of managing our operations in important emerging markets is good news for our Philippine operations and our customers here.
With the support of his talented and capable team, I’m certain Maurice will take our business in the Philippines to the next level.
