Managing Director | Head of Capital Markets Singapore
WeiLeng is the Managing Director | Head of Capital Markets in Singapore and is responsible for the growth of Colliers' Capital Markets & Investment Services team. An exceptional leader of great entrepreneurial spirit, WeiLeng possesses strong capital markets expertise and proven track records. She is adept in advisory and brokerage, as well as principal real estate. With more than 25 years of experience in the real estate industry, she excels in building deep client relationships and extensive industry network.
WeiLeng has a strong collaborative culture and regional outlook, which enables her to fully connect Colliers Singapore to our other businesses within Asia Pacific and across the global platform. It creates added value for clients who now demand highly effective solutions spanning from country to country.
Capital Markets is her expertise. Her first foray into real estate began nearly three decades ago when she was headhunted by government service. She has since accumulated a wealth of experience in selling buildings, hotels and development land. She sold her first office building at 20 Malacca Street at Raffles Place – just barely one year into her new role. That same relentlessness saw her through many more deals, some bigger, others smaller. Over the years, she has developed an excellent network and invested in strong relationships.
She often gets the question, "What drives you?", which she usually answers, "the inexplicable joy I see on my clients' face when I close a deal!" By building trusted relationships, she has successfully entered into joint ventures with both CapitaLand and City Developments Limited (CDL), during her stint on the buy-side with Wells Fargo (then Wachovia Real Estate).
Having three daughters of her own that are coming of age, she understands her people's aspirations and recognises the acceleration of success of her people as one of her key focuses, where she mentors and nurtures them in becoming the next generation of leaders.
Colliers has given her tremendous space to accelerate her success, and she would like to accelerate yours too. Connect with her today!
