Former Chief of Defence Force Neo Kian Hong took over as chief executive of transport operator SMRT this morning and began his first day at his new workplace with a short note to his staff, thanking his predecessor – another former Chief of Defence Force, Desmond Kuek – and wishing him the best for his future endeavours.

In his note, Neo revealed that he has already met some SMRT staff and that he hopes to meet the rest in the near future. He also noted that people have been coming forward to share their views and aspirations for SMRT, since it was announced that Neo would succeed Kuek in April:
