“A happy coincidence”, mused Mr Joseph Low, GM of Operations at Keppel Land Vietnam, when he recalled his posting to Ho Chi Minh City in 2014. Having explored a myriad of roles from helming the Asset Management team at Keppel REIT to heading the Corporate Development team at Keppel Land’s head office in Singapore, Joseph was keen to push himself further and readily seized the opportunity when offered a role in Vietnam.
Keppel Land recognises that people are its greatest asset. As part of its continuous efforts to engage employees, the Company held its Annual Staff Conference which was attended by 460 employees from both Singapore and overseas.
At the Global Keppelites Forum 2017, Mr Loh Chin Hua, CEO of Keppel Corporation and Chairman of Keppel Land, called on Keppelites to take heart in the company’s resilience and strong track record, and to heighten collaborative efforts to realise synergies across the Keppel Group as it continues its journey towards becoming a global company at the forefront of its chosen industries.

When Yee Kee Kong, Assistant GM at Keppel Land, first moved to Jakarta, Indonesia, he experienced first-hand the true meaning of the saying ‘patience is a virtue’.

With over 20 years of experience in the country, Keppel Land has established its roots as one of the largest and pioneer foreign developers in Vietnam, delivering its projects on time, safely and with the hallmark quality that Keppel is renowned for.
Keppel Land continues to engage its staff on various platforms to foster greater interaction and rapport with management and among staff across business units.
When the opportunity arose for her to venture out to Keppel Land’s regional markets beyond its headquarters in Singapore, Serene Phua, Senior Manager, Regional Investments, Keppel Land, gamely accepted the challenge.
With people as the cornerstone of its business, Keppel Land is committed to nurturing a diverse, competent and dedicated talent pool that will drive further growth and create value for the Company .
