Vistara CEO Phee Teik Yeoh likely to join SIA as product & customer service head

New Delhi: : Vistara CEO Phee Teik Yeoh is likely to join Singapore International Airlines (SIA) soon as its head of product and customer service, a person aware of the development has told ET.

Yeoh is set to leave India this month as his deputation at the Tata-SIA joint venture airline has ended.

“He will be joining SIA in the product and customer service department and would not be dealing with Vistara anyway,” this person said, requesting anonymity.

Yeoh was given an extension of three years in April after completing three years with the airline. However, he was called back recently and former SilkAir CEO Leslie Thng was announced as his replacement.

People in the know say there is no need to read too much into Yeoh’s return to SIA because Singapore Airlines typically rotates its staff, offering them positions in various departments globally every few years.
