The Investment firm wrote about a previous incident where they: “made an unsuccessful attempt to bring in a non Singaporean to be the CEO of Temasek some 10 years ago. The offer was made on the strength of what the Board believed he could have brought to the table, though he had to leave shortly after for other reasons. We continue to engage with him through these years, and indeed have had some co-investments together with him”.
