Mr Phua Chian Kin (CK Phua) has over 20 years of experience in the M & E engineering industry, starting his career with Danish multinational LK-NES (S.E.A.) Pte. Ltd., where he served as General Manager and was responsible for 3 of LK-NES’ subsidiaries. In 1993, he took over Trans Equatorial Engineering during a management buyout. Since then, the company has grown from strength to strength. However, it was not all a smooth ride. “There were times where I went into projects knowing full well that I didn’t have that much money and could not afford any failure or hick-ups. Conviction, energy and desire were all I had.”

He received the Public Service Medal in 2007 from the President of Singapore for his contributions to social services. In 2010, Mr. Phua won the Asia Pacific Most Outstanding Entrepreneurship Award. He is a keen sportsman who has completed 10 full marathons to-date.To find and follow other multi-faceted investors, download the Spiking app now.
