Launched in 1985, the SBA has grown to be Singapore’s most prestigious business accolade. It is jointly organised by The Business Times, Singapore’s leading business daily; and DHL Express, the global market leader of the international express and logistics industry.
Alvin Tay, Chairman of the SBA organising committee and Editor of The Business Times, said that “Over the last 28 years, the Singapore Business Awards have recognised the contributions of a wide array of business individuals and companies to the Singapore economy. They have continuously strived beyond excellence and achieved resounding success as proven market leaders in their industries. It is this indefatigable spirit of endeavour and perseverance that we honour in our winners tonight.”
Tan Suee Chieh was cited by the SBA for his outstanding leadership in championing NTUC Income’s revolutionary brand of simple and honest insurance, and for achieving unprecedented business results but yet remaining true to the cooperative’s original social purpose to provide affordable, accessible and sustainable insurance.
Commenting on the award, Tan Suee Chieh says: ““I am especially honoured to be receiving this award because of its significance to NTUC Income as a cooperative and a social enterprise. This award is a strong affirmation and recognition of the work that we have been doing to professionalise NTUC Income. This achievement would not have been possible without the contribution of so many people at NTUC Income. In accepting the award, I paid tribute to all those who work in NTUC Income and in the social enterprises. I dedicated the award to all of you do what you do, not because we believe we can change the world but because we believe we can make a difference.”
