With effect from 1 April 2014 a new Vice President Finance has been appointed at Bucher Emhart Glass. Reto Semadeni is the new VP Finance, taking over from NL Wong, who moves to the newly created position as Finance Director Asia for the Bucher Group and has therefore left Bucher Emhart Glass.
NL Wong, currently VP Finance, moves to the newly created position as Finance Director Asia for the Bucher Group and has therefore left Bucher Emhart Glass. His long lasting career at Bucher Emhart Glass started in 1983 as Controller of the Singapore offices followed by different promotions where in July 1999 he became VP Finance. NL Wong graduated in accountancy from the University of Singapore where he is a member of the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants and a Fellow of CPA Australia. His profound knowledge of Bucher Emhart Glass and the Group as well as his extensive Asian competence will be the sound basis for the new task.
