Venue and event management company ASM Global is increasing its
footprint in the Asia Pacific region with the announcement of new
regional headquarters in Singapore and plans to grow its overall
operations in the region.
ASM Global CEO and President Ron Bension said, “We believe that this
part of the world is ready for a phase of robust growth, and we’re
investing in personnel and plans to ensure we’re at the forefront of a
significant growth curve.”
Harvey Lister, ASM Global APAC Chairman and Chief Executive, cited
ASM’s under-construction Kai Tak Sports Park in Hong Kong; the recently
unveiled Shenzhen World Exhibition and Convention Center; and six future
arenas confirmed to be managed by ASM Global in the region as examples
of the area’s vast potential.
ASM Global Singapore will have a joint leadership team comprising two
long-term industry specialists: Executive Vice President, Operations
Paul Sergeant, a veteran 30-year venue management industry leader; and
Ed Sanderson as Executive Vice President, Venue Development. The two are
expected to take up their roles in Singapore by the end of the year.
Lister said he is confident about the company’s expansion and looks
forward to working closely with the team. “This is an exciting
development and reinforcement of the importance of this region to our
organisation and the expansion of our regionally based business
activities, he said.
