S.P. Setia's Liew is Property Man of the Year


The "Property Man of the Year 2007", presented by the Malaysian chapter of the International Real Estate Federation (Fiabci), went to S.P. Setia Bhd managing director and chief executive officer Tan Sri Liew Kee Sin.

Liew received the award from the Sultan of Selangor, His Royal Highness Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah ibni Sultan Salahuddin, who was guest-of-honour at Fiabci Malaysia's annual awards ceremony in Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya, last Saturday.

This is the 15th year of the Malaysia Property Awards, which attracted more than 50 entries in various categories this time around.

The other winners are:

- YTL Land & Development Bhd for the Sentul West and Sentul East master plan, in the Master Plan category;

- Beneton Properties Sdn Bhd for Stonor Park in the Residential Development (Highrise) category;

- Leisure Farm Corp Sdn Bhd for Pinggiran Bayou Village in the Residential Development (Lowrise) category;

- Resorts World Bhd for Genting Highlands Resort in the Resort Development category;

- Y.S. Tang Holdings Sdn Bhd for KB Mall in the Retail Development category;

- Laurent Lim Architect for the Sultan Abdul Aziz Royal Gallery under the Specialised Project category;

- Persada Johor International Convention Centre for the convention centre of the same name in Johor Baru, under the Specialised Project category; and

- YTL Corp Bhd for the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre, under the Special Award for National Contribution category.

The citation for Liew said "dedicated employees and execution power were the twin driving forces" that spearheaded the transformation of S.P. Setia from a RM200 million company in 1998 into the largest developer today, with market capitalisation in excess of RM5 billion.

Malaysia Property Award winners get to vie for the prestigious Prix d'Excellence, awarded by the Paris-based Fiabci.

Four of last year's winners were recently awarded the Prix d'Excellence. They are Setia Eco Park in the Master Plan Development category; Cyberjaya in the Office/Industrial category; the Hilton Hotel for Hotel Development category and 1 Utama Shopping Centre for the Retail Development category.
