Mr. Phey will take over from Mr. Hai Chwee Chew, a Director of the Board and member of its Executive Committee, who was appointed interim chief during the search for a CEO.

Mr. Phey has two decades of leadership and management experience in the information technology (IT) and telecommunications industries. He is currently with Motorola where he served in various senior roles in the Asia Pacific region over the last 10 years, including Asia Pacific Vice President and General Manager for its Government and Enterprise Mobility Solutions business.

Mr. Phey is a member of Motorola's worldwide steering committees for radio products and wireless broadband. He launched the company's wireless broadband initiative in the enterprise sector and developed it into a strong growth engine for Motorola.

Prior to Motorola, Mr. Phey rose through the ranks at Compaq to become the youngest general manager in Asia. In that role, he built the company's channel network and grew the business multiple folds in Indonesia and the Philippines. Mr. Phey started his career in IBM Singapore in 1986.

Mr. Bien Kiat Tan, Chairman of Pacific Internet Limited, said, "After an extensive search of top-notch candidates in the IT and telecommunications industries, the Board is pleased to appoint Teck Moh as Pacific Internet's CEO.
