Steph is co-founder & CEO of WORQ, where she developed the initial idea and leads the company. She was previously Head of Business Development and Investor Relations at Axis REIT. She was instrumental in growing the REIT from RM1b to RM2b in 3.5 years - providing 27% shareholder returns per annum at its peak. This was the highest return achieved at the REIT to-date and within the industry. Average yield on the properties that she acquired was 14-16%, compared to the property industry average of 5%. Stephanie graduated in the top 5% of her department at Stanford University with a BA in Economics and MS in Management Science and Engineering. She hopes to create a similar entrepreneurship community for Asia inspired by the one she experienced at Stanford.
Steph also has an uncanny ability to introduce significant others who are made for each other, sometimes with success, sometimes not.
