Group Executive Chairman
Engineering is often mis-perceived to be a very onerous, yet financially unrewarding profession. The reality is, engineering is a very unique and highly creative profession which is inherently very satisfying, given that the infrastructure and buildings we design, serve the country, the community and the public at large. Arguably, many other professions do not offer the same opportunity. Personally, I derive immense satisfaction from having had the opportunity to work on some of the iconic buildings in Singapore and regionally as these will outlast me and serve as a reference point for posterity. I find this greatly rewarding.
