Raymond Siew

Principal | Coordinator

As an entrepreneur, Raymond Siew’s firsthand knowledge and personal insights are distilled from his 21-year exposure in the corporate arena and hands-on experience as a dealmaker in both local and foreign corporate environments, which include Fortune 500 as well as public-listed companies.
 
Raymond graduated from City & East London College in Optics and worked for Dollond & Aitchison (UK), the largest optical house in Europe with over 600 branches in the UK; he also worked in For Eyes, the fastest-growing optical chain in the UK during the late 80’s and also the first optical house to go for public listing. Shortly after returning to Malaysia in the 1990’s, Raymond shifted focus from the optical industry and he started his own Construction and Interior Design company.
 
In 1997, Raymond was Corporate Projects Director of a multinational development company with projects in Australia, China, Laos, Papua New Guinea and Malaysia. His portfolio covered the group’s construction subsidiaries in Malaysia with the brief to coordinate with key personnel to identify and negotiate corporate level contracts in Malaysia, and to oversee implementation.
 
Between 1999 to 2001, Raymond was invited by Star Cruises PLC to form a Malaysian Design and Build Consortium for the refurbishment of their cruise liners. In the consortium, Raymond had the privilege to work with WTW Lehrer McGovern (a subsidiary of Bovis Lendlease PLC, and the project manager of Petronas Twin Towers) and Federal Furniture Bhd as well as marine experts, designers, contractors and shipyard owners from America, Singapore, Malaysia and Australia.
 
Raymond started EMasters with Shoi in 2002 and successfully turned EMasters into a profitable company in 2007. He is currently responsible for the development of EMasters and its suite of services.
 
Raymond was also the Mind Coach for the Malaysian Chess Team and successfully coached and raised national chess players from scratch, identifying talent and nurturing them to the very top of the pinnacle in Malaysia.
