SMRT appoints former security director as new chief spokesman
SMRT has tapped its former security director to be its new chief spokesman.
The transport operator appointed Mr Patrick Nathan as vice-president of a newly formed corporate information and communications cluster last week.
He replaces Ms Kalai Natarajan, 41, who resigned in July after five months on the job. A former army officer and national security specialist, Mr Nathan, 51, joined SMRT in 2011 as its director for security operations and readiness.
Prior to that, he was deputy director at the National Security Coordination Centre (NSCC) where he covered various roles such as policy, risk assessment and corporate communication.
