PETALING JAYA (April 1): CBRE|WTW on Thursday (March 31) announced a change in the names of its business entities and the appointment of new leadership.

According to a press statement, the three business lines of CBRE|WTW will be renamed as CBRE WTW Valuation & Advisory Sdn Bhd (formerly known as C H Williams Talhar & Wong Sdn Bhd), CBRE WTW Real Estate Sdn Bhd (formerly known as WTW Real Estate Sdn Bhd), and CBRE WTW Property Services Sdn Bhd (formerly known as WTW Property Services Sdn Bhd).

On the other hand, managing director Foo Gee Jen has been redesignated as the group chairman, effectively from Friday. CBRE|WTW has also appointed Danny SK Yeo as the group deputy chairman, Tan Ka Leong as the group managing director, Heng Kiang Hai as the group deputy managing director and Lim Chai Yin as the advisory and transaction managing director.

“CBRE|WTW led to expanding the boundaries of what real estate services are typically defined as. Each business line will now be dedicating time to not only providing excellence but to include consultancy and strategic business thinking as we expand our line of work to provide a holistic experience for our clients,” said Foo.

Meanwhile, Tan said that CBRE|WTW had always stood strong with the motto to be the preferred real estate provider in Malaysia as well as the chosen organisation for rising talent. “Having the right people get the job done is one thing but it is also up to the management to create a platform for the people and an environment that is conducive to producing the best. I hope to achieve these aspects and to give my employees the right tools to grow together with the company,” he noted.
