as vs is

Post by tamguatlay »

Lee Hsien Yang was also the ex-chairman of food and beverage company Fraser & Neave Ltd. who oversaw a bidding war for the firm, which was eventually acquired by Thai billionaire Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi for S$13.8 billion in 2013.

Should it be 'Lee Hsien Yang is also the ex-chairman...'. since he is alive.

Thanks.
