Mass Rapid Transit Corporation has picked Schrene Goh as its new chief of commercial, according to Goh when MARKETING-INTERACTIVE reached out. She will be reporting to the CEO of Mass Rapid Transit Corporation, Datuk Mohd Zarif Hashim.

Her new remit will involve commercialising non-fare revenue in retail and transit spaces, including advertising space, station naming rights, event space and innovative placemaking collaborations, she said. 

"I will also be responsible for maximising revenue from telecommunication facilities located along the MRT & RTS Link alignments. With the extensive fibre optic network coverage being installed for both the MRT1 & MRT2 lines as well as the proposed cross border network between Johor Bahru and Singapore, there is immense potential for major telco service providers and hyperscale data centre providers to invest and to benefit from the secured fibre network connection," said added.
