Tan Sri Dato' Francis Yeoh

Le Prestige Lifestyle, Issue 2004

Malaysia's movers and shakers 2003
Spotlight on Tan Sri Dato' Francis Yeoh

On August 7, 2003, YTL Corporation Berhad presented to the people of Bath, England, the YTL Concert of Celebration 2003 featuring the world-renowned Three Tenors – Jose Carreras, Placido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti.

?

The man who made it all possible was none other than billionaire industrialist, Tan Sri Dato' Francis Yeoh, the man who helms YTL. Dynamic and confident, Yeoh is considered by many as one of the most astute businessmen in the region.?Known for his hands-on approach in everything he does, he has been winning international accolades for his business acumen. Yeoh represented Malaysia at the World Entrepreneur of the year event in Monte Carlo in June this year after winning the inaugural 2002 Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year award.

?

Yeoh was also recently honoured at BusinessWeek's "Stars of Asia 2003" in Hong Kong. BusinessWeek cited that Yeoh’s safe and smart business sense made him stand out during the Asian crisis, thus making YTL one of Malaysia's strongest companies with a global presence.

?

YTL is targeting a compounded annual growth rate of 20 per cent until the year 2020 given its steady income flow from its regulated assets such as water supply services and electricity transmission grid it manages around the world. YTL is a major player in a diverse set of industries like construction, cement manufacturing, property development, and hotels and resorts management.

?

YTL has also added another feather to its cap after Pangkor Laut Resort won the "Number 1 in the World" award and "The Best Overseas Destination Spa" category at the Condé Nast Traveller Readers Travel Awards. The premier travel magazine has placed the resort on the cover of its October 2003 issue.

?

Despite the numerous accolades and successes that have been heaped on him and the company, the affable Yeoh remains calm and down-to-earth. His father, Tan Sri Dato' Seri (Dr) Yeoh Tiong Lay is YTL's current executive chairman and was a leading in the construction business in the 1960s and 1970s. Yeoh's childhood was spent at his father’s numerous construction sites getting a close look at how? the business was developing.?Yeoh later joined the family’s construction business in 1978 at the age of 24 and the rest, as they say, is history.

?

Yeoh, an avid sportsman and school captain during his teenage years at Victoria Institution, believes that a balance between studies and extra curricular activities helps build an all-rounded character and prepares a person to sharpen his leadership qualities.

?

He encourages his children to follow the same path –? to be active in extra curricular activities and at the same time not neglecting their studies. The far sighted businessman that he is, he is already preparing the next generation to take over YTL.
