Singapore Post (SingPost) has appointed Paul Coutts group chief executive officer, effective June 1, 2017.
Coutts, who will also serve as a non-independent director on the SingPost board, joins from Toll Global Forwarding, a Toll Group division.

Describing the opportunity to lead SingPost’s transformation into an e-commerce logistics company as “exciting”, Coutts added that “the natural fit of postal services with e-commerce logistics, together with Singapore’s strategic position as a hub, provides a platform to build a world-class business”.
SingPost chairman Simon Israel said, “The SingPost Board is delighted to announce Paul’s appointment as Group CEO. Given his seniority and the experience he brings from an extensive logistics and postal career, including global leadership roles, Paul is well positioned to provide overall leadership to the transformation of the Group, integrate SingPost’s e-commerce logistics platforms, and build a globally competitive business.”
