SINGAPORE, January 31, 2019 — BlocBox Pte. Ltd. announces the addition of a new member to its advisory board; Mr. Priveen Raj Naidu, who is currently the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Reapra Aviation Partners (RAP), an aviation subsidiary of Reapra Pte. Ltd.

As one half of the two-member team that set up AirAsia in Singapore back in 2003, Priveen has extensive experience in the aviation industry that saw him take up overlapping responsibilities of branding, strategizing, business development and curating consumer experience for the low-cost carrier. His determination to grow and expand his skillsets motivated him to leave AirAsia after nearly a decade, and he subsequently joined Temasek Polytechnic’s aviation management department as a lecturer. During his stint as a lecturer in the polytechnic, he spent a lot of time working with industry partners to formulate and review existing content to ensure standards and policies are aligned to the aviation industry.

Priveen’s enduring passion for the aviation industry brought him to found Reapra Aviation Partners in late 2017, a company that helps the region increase its aviation capabilities through working with government stakeholders to increase their aviation economies in the airline, airport and training space.

Addressing his joining BlocBox’s advisory board, Priveen comments, “I have always been a believer of disruptors, having been with brands that have redefined social norms. I am personally excited to collaborate with the amazing BlocBox team to explore bringing change to the aviation space. The team is backed up with decades of respective experience and I hope to work with them to bring effective and holistic shifts into my industry. This solution has the potential to change and empower the way we translate safety in the aviation segment.”

Kenny Koh, CEO & Co-Founder of BlocBox adds, “We are very excited to have Priveen on our advisory board and are encouraged by his belief in the success of our solution and our potential as a team. With his dynamic experience and perspective, he will be a valuable asset to us while developing our blockchain protocol for aviation.”

The BlocBox team will be tapping on Priveen’s expertise in the aviation sector and will work closely with him to understand key factors of success while customising the blockchain protocol for the aviation industry.
