Peter McLean has been appointed Head of the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region for Kalmar. He succeeds Ken Loh, who has decided to leave Kalmar to pursue other interests outside the company. Mr. Loh will continue as an adviser until mid-next year to support a smooth transition.
“Ken Loh has a long and very impressive career within Kalmar and he has played a major role in building our success in the Asia-Pacific region. He joined Kalmar Singapore in 1987 as a management trainee. Two years later, he started Kalmar’s business in Greater China. In 2000, he began to lead the operation in Asia and has delivered many sales records and successful transformation projects over the years. Ken’s ability to build motivation and commitment in his team is truly unique. I want to thank him for his notable contribution and wish him all the best in his future endeavours,” says Antti Kaunonen, President, Kalmar.
“At the same time, I am pleased to find a successor within the company. Peter McLean was recently appointed President of Bromma but his long experience in Kalmar and in the APAC region makes him a perfect match for this role. I want to wish Peter the best of success in his new role.”
