Loi Pok Yen
Loi runs CWT, which operates in 49 countries and is the largest logistics company listed in Southeast Asia with more than $9 billion in revenue. He also oversaw the purchase of Swiss-founded MRI Trading in 2011, which he has since grown into the world’s second-largest independent trader of copper concentrate. CWT was consequently named one of Forbes Asia-Pacific’s Fab 50 publicly traded companies for the second year running in 2014. Not one to rest on his laurels, Loi is currently looking to expand the company’s brokering subsidiary, Straits Financial.
