Jeffrey Cheah, A Man of Two Worlds

Mention the name Tan Sri Dr. Jeffrey Cheah, AO and one would invariably know him as the Founder and Chairman of Malaysia’s Sunway Group. After all, the soft-spoken businessman is recognized for developing some of the most iconic townships and establishments in Malaysia.

These include Sunway City in Kuala Lumpur, Sunway City Ipoh in the state of Perak and Sunway Iskandar in southern Malaysia. Spanning about 5,000 acres across the country, the townships and other integrated developments comprise a host of healthcare, education, retail, hospitality, leisure and commercial entities, in a green and sustainable environment.
