Ixom HoldCo, owned by Keppel Infrastructure Trust, said Paul Atkinson will replace current CEO Dean Draper starting 17 June. Draper stepped down with immediate effect, KIT announced Tuesday.

KIT, said only that Draper left due to a “change in executive leadership at Ixom to execute the strategic direction of the business as laid out by the board of Ixom.”

Matthew Pollard, CEO of Keppel Infrastructure Fund Management, the manager of KIT, will be acting CEO in the interim, KIT said in a filing to SGX.

Atkinson currently serves as CEO of Milan-based multinational company Prysmian Group in Asia Pacific, the filing said. Previously, he was CEO of UK Prysmian Group and CEO of Oceania Prysmian Group, it added.

Prsymian Group manufactures electric power transmission and telecommunications cables and systems.

Australia- and New Zealand-based Ixom is a supplier and distributor of water-treatment chemicals, such as liquefied chlorine, chlorine derivatives and caustic soda, as well as other chemicals, and it is Australia’s only maker of liquefied chlorine.
