Chairman and Managing Director
Ong Pang Aik's Lian Beng Group celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2013 with its order book at a robust $1.2 billion at the end of August, ensuring a constant flow of activity up to 2016. Ong, who joined his father's company in 1978 is credited with growing the group from a subcontractor handling small contracts into an A1-graded, BCA-registered player handling multimillion-dollar projects. He has steered the Group through several construction down cycles, each time emerging stronger. The group continues to perform strongly under his leadership — mid-2013, wholly owned unit Lian Beng Construction clinched its ninth contract for the year to develop a $115 million condominium in Pasir Ris. A week earlier, subsidiary Deenn Engineering had been awarded an $85 million contract for a 12-storey office building and 11-storey carpark. In the areas of property development, Lian Beng launched 50 percent-owned residential development Spottiswoode Suites and The Midtown, a large-scale mixed-development project at Hougang.
