StarHub CEO Clontz steps down

Will be succeeded by former M1 CEO Montefiore

HONG KONG -- Terry Clontz is to step down as CEO of Singaporean cable TV group StarHub.

He will be succeeded by Neil Montefiore, a 30-year telecoms veteran who was CEO of M1 in Singapore, and has held jobs in the U.K., the Middle East and Asia with Hong Kong's CSL, Vodafone and Cable & Wireless.

Launched in 2000 as a mobile phones company, in 2002 StarHub acquired Singapore Cable Vision and now sees itself as one of the world's most integrated 'quadruple-play' companies. It has operations spanning entertainment, broadband Internet, mobile and fixed-line telephones.

The handover, which is subject to regulatory approval, will take place in January, with Clontz remaining as a StarHub board director.
