Royal Group, Wing’s parent company, announced this week the appointment of Manu Rajan as Wing’s new CEO.
Mr Rajan replaces Jojo Malolos, who is moving back to his home country, the Philippines. Mr Malolos, who has served as Wing’s CEO since 2016, will remain board director and advisor to the company.
