Although he had launched the updated Ipoh Autohaus earlier in his official capacity, Mr. Thomas Tok Chek Kuan’s appointment as the new Cycle & Carriage Bintang Bhd (C&C) CEO (chief executive officer) is now officially announced. He assumes the role to succeed Mr. Wilfrid Foo Tsu-Jin. Prior to this role, Tok had been C&C General Manager and Head of Sales since 1 January 2017. Meanwhile, Foo left the CEO position to become the Chairman of C&C as well as Managing Director of Cycle & Carriage Singapore.
Tok has over 20 years’ experience in the automotive industry and has held portfolios in Sales, Auto Finance & Insurance, Vehicle Logistics and Leasing businesses. Prior to joining C&C, Tok held various positions across different areas in Cycle & Carriage Singapore for over a decade. He had also spent 4 years in China managing dealership operations. His tenure in Zung Fu (China), a major dealer group for Mercedes-Benz in China, included a stint in managing dealerships in Guangdong.
“I am excited to take on the Chief Executive role in C&C, an organisation that stands for the hallmark of exceptional service and quality. Mr. Wilfrid Foo has inspired our team here and set an impressive momentum of modernising the retail experience for our customers. I look forward to serving the community with continuous support from our Cycle & Carriage family,” said Mr. Thomas Tok who is a graduate of the University of London.
“Since joining C&C, Thomas has professionalised the sales management operation system across our network and grew our downstream business strongly by leading new business concepts. His familiarity with the company and experiences in the industry is well suited to ensure the stability and continuation of the company’s strategies under his leadership. I am excited to pass the baton over to him and I believe that he will bring Cycle & Carriage to greater heights in years to come,” quoted Mr. Wilfrid Foo.
