Singapore Compact for Corporate Social Responsibility has a new president. Ms. Olivia Lum, Group CEO and President of Hyflux Ltd has been elected as the new president for a 3 year term from 2009 to 2012. Ms Lum takes over from Ms. Claire Chiang, Senior Vice President, Banyan Tree Hotels and Resorts who was the first president of Singapore Compact.
