Lim Hua Tiong commented that the mission of leading the development of One Bangkok until its completion is in line with Bangkok’s post-pandemic recovery strategy.
One Bangkok Co., Ltd., a joint venture between TCC Assets (Thailand) Co., Ltd. and Frasers Property Holdings (Thailand) Co., Ltd. announced Lim Hua Tiong as new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) - Development, One Bangkok, effective from 1 April 2022.
He will succeed Soon Su Lin, who assumes the role of CEO of Frasers Property Singapore.
Lim brings to this role a wealth of leadership experience, a strong business acumen and expertise in leading high-performing teams. He will remain CEO of Frasers Property Vietnam, a role he has held since May 2019.
Prior to joining Frasers Property, Hua Tiong held senior management positions in well-established real estate companies in Vietnam and Singapore for almost two decades, with a focus on township and high-end developments.
Frasers Property Group CEO Panote Sirivadhanabhakdi said Hua Tiong has broad experience and expertise in all aspects of real estate development, particularly in real estate investments, financing and managing mixed development projects.
"I’m confident Hua Tiong will lead the One Bangkok team well as we progress to the next phase of our journey to bring to life our vision of a fully integrated district that will revolutionise the way we experience the city and become an iconic global landmark befitting of Thailand’s standing on the world stage,” he said.
“I would also like to express my sincere appreciation to Su Lin for her strong leadership, dedication, and significant contributions to achieving several key milestones for One Bangkok over the past six years. I look forward to working closely with her to strengthen our Singapore business,” he added.
Hua Tiong commented that the mission of leading the development of One Bangkok until its completion is in line with Bangkok’s post-pandemic recovery strategy.
As a highly resilient megacity with robust urban infrastructure and the country’s economic engine, he said Bangkok is well-placed to recover quickly.
"We believe that the opening of One Bangkok in the fourth quarter of 2023 as a world-class centrepiece for quality hospitality, residences, workspace, art and culture, and retail experiences will play a key role in reviving the dynamism of Bangkok and Thailand, attracting investors, business, and leisure travellers from around the world,” he said.
He added that the mixed-use development of a large-scale and integrated project like One Bangkok requires the synergistic power of smart, motivated, and creative people from across different disciplines.
"My role will be to build on Su Lin’s legacy and continue to strengthen, empower, inspire, and connect all associates, encouraging close collaboration and interpersonal bonds between all team members towards our common goal,” Hua Tiong added.
Hua Tiong holds a Bachelor of Accounting degree from the University of Malaya and is a member of the Malaysia Institute of Accountants. He is also a graduate from the Management Acceleration Programme at INSEAD Business School in France.
