In making the announcement to the school community, Sameer Aggarwal, CEO of Cognita Asia Holdings, shared the following. 

"Given the importance of the role, we conducted a global search to find the right leader for this prestigious institution in Singapore.  The search process included meetings of shortlisted candidates with current SAIS students, staff and parents.  Throughout the interview process, Mr. Mills impressed the search committee with his focus on academic excellence and the holistic development of children.  Mr. Mills has more than 25 years of headship and senior-level leadership within top international schools in New Zealand, Hong Kong, China, German and Thailand.  Mr. Mills most recent role was the Head of School of Bangkok Patana School (Thailand) for a record 15-year tenure.
