PETALING JAYA (March 1): Australia-based international real estate group Lendlease on Tuesday (March 1) appointed Yong Su-Lin (pictured) as the managing director of the Malaysia office. She will be reporting directly to the CEO of Asia market Justin Gabbani from Tuesday. 

According to a press statement, Yong will assume leadership of the business in Malaysia, driving the strategy, growth and operations across Lendlease’s development, investments and construction businesses in the country. The appointment follows incumbent Stuart Mendel’s return to Australia after seven years in Malaysia.

Yong has more than 25 years of corporate banking and real estate experience including project financing and consultancy. She was most recently CEO of Sentral REIT, a role she assumed in 2015. Part of the core team since 2006, Yong was involved in the operations of Sentral REIT and led the investment and investor relations function.

“I would like to congratulate Yong and welcome her to Lendlease. Malaysia is a key market for the Asia business, home to our largest integrated development – The Exchange TRX. Yong’s expertise and experience will add further perspective to the Asia Leadership Team.

“In collaboration with Dinesh Nambiar, who continues in his role as chairman of Lendlease Malaysia, I look forward to further advancing our growth strategy and to continue to deliver long-term sustainable value,” Gabbani said.
