Chinese entrepreneur Gordon Tang, who is now a permanent resident of Singapore, is a man donning many hats. Mr. Tang started Tang Dynasty Pte Ltd in 1995, and soon in 2003, he ventured ahead with Haiyi. With his wife Mrs. Celine Tang, Gordon Tang continued to explore international trade and was investing in real estate in Singapore individually, through condos and strata offices. Things heated up further when the Tangs acquired a controlling interest of 62.2% in SingHaiyi Group, which was previously known as Sing- Xpress Land. Through the same interest and despite being a non-executive director of SingHaiyi, Mr. Tang continues to guide the company. Today, SingHaiyi has considerable investments in China, Malaysia, Singapore and the US, and Mr. Tang is already exploring the choices and options in other markets, including Australia and Europe. In fact, they may have made a mark as SingHaiyi acquired a 9% stake in Australia-listed Cromwell Property Group.

SingHaiyi has also completed The Values – a 500+ condo project in Sengkang and plans to complete a similar one in San Francisco Bay, California, where they acquired a large freehold site. For Mr. Tang, the idea is to look at global real estate with a strategic approach and through right partnerships.
