New GM for Marina Bay Financial Centre


Colliers’ Singapore MD to be promoted to MD for North Asia


THE joint venture developers of Marina Bay Financial Centre (MBFC) – Cheung Kong Holdings, Hutchison Whampoa, Hongkong Land and Keppel Land – said yesterday they have appointed a new general manager for the prime project.


Wilson Kwong replaces outgoing general manager David Martin, who is moving to Hong Kong after running MBFC for four years.


Mr Kwong was previously senior asset manager, commercial property, for Hongkong Land – a role that included managing the company’s interests in key developments in Hong Kong.


From 1998 to 2006 he held various management positions in the Jardine Matheson Group.


‘MBFC is shaping up to redefine the Central Business District in Singapore by adding 3 million sq ft of office space, 649 new residential apartments and more than 120,000 sq ft of new shopping and dining pleasures,’ he said. ‘A project of this magnitude relies on the interaction of many parties, including MBFC’s strong team and I look forward to working with all the parties involved.’


Mr Kwong paid tribute to Mr Martin for leading a team that gave MBFC a strong start and guiding the project through its initial phases of land tendering, design and planning.


Separately, marketing agent Colliers International has said its Singapore managing director Dennis Yeo will be promoted to managing director for North Asia from June 1. In his new portfolio, Mr Yeo will oversee Colliers’ businesses in China and Taiwan, except Hong Kong and Macau.


He will work with local management teams on strategy and identifying new business opportunities.


Mr Yeo will continue as head of the regional industrial group, which helps with clients with cross-border transactions.
