Sino-Ocean Group Holding Ltd. appointed Judy Lam Sin Lai as a new independent nonexecutive director on its board, with effect from Aug. 14.
Lam's appointment comes on the back of the death of former independent nonexecutive director Tsang Hing Lun on June 4. With Lam joining the board, the number of independent nonexecutive directors sits at five.
Along with her new directorship, Lam will also take on the role of chairman of the audit committee and will join the investment committee as a member, a position also left by Tsang.
Lam is the chancellor and board director of Wuhan College, a position she assumed in 2015. Previously, she served as a vice president at Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
