Message from the Chair

The Lion City Roars: Singapore Chapter packs a powerful CRE punch.

Welcome to Asia's largest, most active and ethnically diverse Chapter, with over 280 senior members representing a unique blend of local, Asian and global organisations. We also partner with local universities to nurture the next generation of CRE leaders from our student community.

Singapore is one of only three city states in the world, with a population of 5.6 million on an island that’s only 30 miles long and 17 miles wide. Half the size of Los Angeles and less than 60 years old, Singapore’s meteoric rise as a power player is a lesson in what exceptional leadership can achieve.

Strong leadership built on meritocracy attracting the best, brightest talent also drives CoreNet Global Singapore Chapter’s transformation in the last few years. As a prime global financial centre, this is the APAC headquarters for most large multi-nationals, so our membership comprises an unusually large proportion of senior CRE professionals from whom quality expectations are high.

We proactively design events featuring top calibre speakers who challenge the status quo. Activities are highly interactive breaking the traditional mould and our social events bring members together to network, learn and share. With the impact of Covid-19, we focus on a series of digital and virtual initiatives which centre of CRE connectivity and Business Resilience.

Come and join us, but more importantly, actively participate in shaping the future of CRE in this great Lion City.
