The Real Estate Developers’ Association of Singapore (REDAS) has named Chia Ngiang Hong, group general manager at City Developments Limited (CDL), as its new president for the 2019/2020 term, reported the Business Times.
He will be taking over the reins from Augustine Tan, Far East Organization’s executive director of property services division, who served two terms in office.
Chia brings with him 40 years of corporate leadership and management experience. He joined CDL in 1981 and is a member of the Building and Construction Authority Academy’s advisory panel. A board member of the Institute of Real Estate Studies, Chia is also the Singapore Green Building Council’s immediate past president and fellow of the Singapore Institute of Surveyors and Valuers.
He currently chairs the Advisory Committee to the National University of Singapore’s School of Design and Environment while serving as a member of the Department Consultative Committee.
“I look forward to working closely with them (the REDAS committee) on progressing many of the initiatives to grow the industry, promote a pro-business environment, champion excellence and sustainable developments in our built environment for the betterment of the real estate industry,” said Chia.
Tan also expressed confidence that the new leadership at REDAS will “continue to play its pivotal role in the growth and development of the real estate industry in Singapore and beyond”.
