Temasek Holdings Pte, Singapore's state-owned investment company, hired Morgan Stanley managing director Jonathan Popper, said two people with knowledge of the matter who asked not to be identified. 

Popper oversaw mergers and acquisitions in Southeast Asia for the New York-based bank, where he has worked since 2001. Nick Footitt, a spokesman for Morgan Stanley in Hong Kong, confirmed that Popper will be leaving the firm, declining to comment further.

At Morgan Stanley, (MS) Popper was involved in advising Thai billionaire Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi on his S$8.9 billion (US$7.3 billion) offer for Singapore's Fraser & Neave Ltd. (FNN) Charoen, who is vying with a group led by Overseas Union Enterprise Ltd. (OUE) for Fraser & Neave, on Thursday extended his bid ahead of a deadline for final bids later this month.
