Are commas needed


It’s [referring to a company] general manager Arthur Seah said that it checked the recalled packages and did not find screws.

Should there be a comma after “manager” and before “said”?



I found this interesting article: The Most Comma Mistakes

According to this, since Arthur is the only general manager, his name should be offset with commas, as the name is not essential to the meaning of the sentence.


I think you can opt for any one of the following:

1. Its general manager, Arthur Seah, said that …
2. Arthur Seah, its general manager, said that …
3. General Manager Arthur Seah of the company said that …
