The Casino Regulatory Authority in Singapore is to get a new chairman on April 2, as Tan Tee How steps up from his current position of deputy chairman.

In a statement, Singapore’s Ministry of Home Affairs said Tan (pictured) will replace Lee Tzu Yang, who retires after three years as chairman.

As chairman of the CRA, Lee played a key role in steering the authority towards “regulatory excellence,” the MHA said.

Kasiviswanathan Shanmugam, minister for home affairs and minister for law, said: “I would like to thank Mr Lee Tzu Yang for his valuable contributions to CRA over the past three years.

“He had guided CRA in its efforts to further strengthen Singapore’s casino regulatory regime and forge closer ties with international partners.

“Under his leadership, CRA has enhanced its standing as an effective and robust regulator.”
