The Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA) has announced the election of a new chairman and board of directors at its annual general meeting (AGM) in Singapore.

From this group, Mr. Wu Zhendong was appointed as the new chairman, replacing Jenny Lau, who stepped down ahead of the AGM.
“As a board, we will focus on the value that AsBAA can bring to our members,” said Mr. Zhendong.
“We will also work closely with regional governments and authorities to support the growth of industry and make our voice heard within regulatory agencies.
“Finally, we will continue our programme of events and initiatives including AsBAA’s Icons of Aviation, AsBAA Safety Days and our work with IBAC, cope with climate change, support of biofuel, sustainable business practice and environment friendly operations.”
Five vice-chairs were also appointed at the meeting: Phil Balmer, existing Vice-Chairman and Head of the Hong Kong Chapter, Rocky Zhang, in charge of the association’s mainland China Chapter, Max Motschmann, a key member of AsBAA’s Philippine Chapter, Lou-Ann Seet of Collins Aerospace and Paul Desgrosseilliers of Execujet.
“We welcome the new Board of Directors and we will support them during the transitional phase for the association,” said outgoind chairperson Lau.
“The new Board of Directors represents the diversity of the AsBAA membership and will allow the association to advocate on behalf of business aviation across Asia”.
