Hard work, honesty and kindness are principles that guide Sandy Tan in her role as CEO of Optimax Eye Specialist. The law graduate who previously dabbled in image consulting grew up with the family business throughout her adolescent years, assuming the responsibility of CEO in 2015. “Studying law gives me the knowledge I require, while fashion teaches me about flexibility and creativity,” says the all- rounder who has completed previous stints in finance and fashion.
Helming one of the most reputable eye care providers in Southeast Asia, Sandy cites having a good mission and vision as well as close communication with employees as part of her strategy to ensure the sustainability of the business. “I want to provide the most outstanding eye healthcare to Malaysians at all levels. Our top-notch eye care services with promising results and CSR programmes catering to the less fortunate have been successful.” To date, Optimax has conducted complimentary eye health screenings and eye health education to the public as part of the company’s social responsibility as a medical service provider.
As for what she wants to achieve before turning 40, Sandy reveals that she is grateful for what she has now. “I just want to embrace life and keep improving myself to be a good mother and be successful in my career.”
