Mr Lee Chee Koon is currently the Group Chief Investment Officer of CapitaLand. He joined the company in February 2007 and has held several appointments within the group, including as Chief Executive Officer of Ascott, CapitaLand’s wholly owned serviced residence business.

Mr Lee said: “I am deeply honoured to have this opportunity to lead CapitaLand in its next phase of growth. Ming Yan has built a strong foundation for expansion. I will build upon it to bring CapitaLand forward and to achieve greater returns to shareholders. I look forward to working with a very experienced Board and our dedicated colleagues at CapitaLand to shape a greater future for the Group.”

After stepping down as President & Group CEO on 15 September 2018, Mr Lim Ming Yan will continue to serve as a Board Director of the company until 31 December 20182.

This new cohort of top leadership was primed and groomed for many years, and I am proud to see them rising to the challenge.”
