2018 sees also the updating of our Logo. In line with our image, the logo retains our original “signature” of colleagues joining hands and also details the fact that we do things a little differently.
New CEO Jeremy Clark
APOT Founder Keerthi “Happy” Hapugasdeniya and Chairman Bambang Sujatmiko announced at the Feb 8th APOT Golf Day and general meeting in Jakarta that Jeremy Clark has been invited to take the position of CEO from that date.
