Chairman and CEO

Chairman and CEO of Ho Bee Investment Chua Thian Poh made his first million at age 21 and ranks 26th in Forbes 2013 list of Singapore's 50 Richest, with an estimated net-worth of $253.3 million. He is the key decision-maker of the group, setting its strategic direction and determining its financial and investment decisions. Ho Bee develops luxury properties in the exclusive Sentosa enclave and has real estate holdings in London, China and Australia. In August, it broke ground for a prime joint-venture residential project in China's Zhuhai city, effectively extending its footprint within the rapidly developing Pearl River Delta Region. A leader in Singapore's Chinese community and current chairman of Singapore Federation of Chinese Clan Associations, Chua is also a well-known philanthropist. With a generous gift of $5 million in 2011, he established the Chua Thian Poh Community Leadership Programme, which aims to groom Singapore's next generation of community leaders. This year, the programme held its first student-led symposium, with six fellows from the inaugural batch of fellows sharing their research findings on a diverse range of social issues.
