Yong was honoured for modernising Aurum Land into a true space and business innovator and contributing to Singapore’s co-sharing economy.
“I believe that what matters most in life is the depth of your relationships and the sheer number of people you have helped along the way – it is the true measure of wealth – and that as business leaders, we have the privilege and duty to impact so many more people more deeply,” Yong said.
“I hope to live up to the legacy of this award and its past recipients by continuing to lead from the heart and build supportive environments that create change, advance communities, and accelerate growth.”
