“We are excited to welcome Alex to the IBIA team. He brings a great set of skills that make him very well suited to this important role, and we look forward to working with him,” says IBIA Director Unni Einemo.

Tang arrives from his most recent appointment at testing and inspection firm Petro Inspect, and has held previous roles at Bureau Veritas AsiaLloyd’s Register FOBAS, and BP Singapore.
