“I was born with a passion for real estate, always hungry for success and I loved the chase of a deal,” Su San shares, recalling her experience in Singapore as a commercial real estate agent upon graduation. However, an opportunity to set up a small office in Kuala Lumpur led to the starting of her first two business ventures in the property and construction industry, namely Polished Concrete and Designer Finish.
Since then, her business empire continues to grow as she dabbles into various sectors, including recreation industry (both LaserOPS in Singapore and Penang), hospitality industry (Hotel Inap and Glasshouse at Seputeh) and more recently, F&B industry with two Korean outlets (Hanbing Korean Dessert Café and Shinmapo Korean BBQ). “I feel that the ability to build thriving businesses in different industries is something I am most proud of,” Su San notes, adding that the process of creating value is something that keeps her continuously passionate about being in business.
Although 24 hours doesn’t seem a lot, it is sufficient for this business-driven lady. Su San says we just have to make the most out of it. The one thing that is slowing her down is hiring the right talents and building a new team. “It’s a challenging task, especially during periods of accelerated growth and short project timelines.”
