Inligo Networks has appointed Chockalingam (Chock) as the new member of their Executive Team. He comes with vast regional telecoms experience and has worked as a finance director for Telstra International’s Asian operations for over 15 years. During his tenure at Telstra, Chock was responsible for the financial management of Telstra’s regional subsea cable and cable land station assets, as well as regulatory compliance across the operating region.
Brian Evans, executive Chairman at Inligo Networks, said that Chock’s appointment would complete the current Executive Team, providing significant financial knowledge and experience as the company moves into the construction phase of ACC-1. He also added that finding a professional with Chock’s depth of telecommunications and regulatory experience, not just in Singapore but throughout the Asian region, is a significant advantage for Inligo.
In his new role, Chock will lead the global financial and regulatory functions of the business, including those in Singapore, Australia, Indonesia, Philippines, and the US. Based in Singapore, he will also lead the treasury and accounting functions.
One of Chock’s immediate tasks will be to onboard various financial roles required across the organization, including subsidiaries, to deliver their agreed business outcomes.
Bringing Extensive Industry Experience
Chock, the newly appointed member of Inligo Networks’ Executive Team, had previously worked as a partner in Telok Partners and Fortius Consulting. He had also held various directorships throughout the Asia-Pacific region as Telstra’s representative for its subsidiaries.
The board of directors at Inligo Networks includes Simon Zettl, who previously worked for BT and Vodafone, Tim Gigg, who formerly worked for Flag Telecom and Vodafone, John Thompson, who previously worked for Vodafone and J-Phone in Japan, and Jennifer Chih, a Singaporean lawyer.
