LESSONS FROM MY GRANDFATHER

13 Mar 2017 09:00

By LEE MEIXIAN

Acheongsam is a practical piece of clothing, says Straits Trading executive chairman Chew Gek Khim. It requires minimal matching and is efficient to tailor-make. One set of measurements and you can order 10 pieces in different fabrics. That is probably why she wears one all the time.

Her perspective in life carries the same pragmatism. The granddaughter of the late OCBC chairman Tan Chin Tuan has spent the last nine years since her 2008 takeover of Straits Trading from OCBC's Lee family painstakingly and systematically building the company back to profitability.

The company is her grandfather's legacy, one of about a dozen that he had helped to build up in his time at OCBC, and the only one that Ms Chew had managed to wrest back control of when the lender was required by the Monetary Authority of Singapore to divest its non-banking assets by 2006.

She did so on the instruction of her grandfather, who died in 2005. "Firstly, he felt it was his life's work," she says. "Secondly, it's something very few people appreciate today: it meant a lot to him that Asians were controlling listed companies. You have to understand that he came from a colonial era. Everything was controlled by the British. For Singaporeans to own these companies meant something."
