WeiLeng is the Managing Director of Colliers in Singapore and is responsible for the business's growth strategy and direction. As an enterprising real estate service solutions provider, she currently leads a team of experts advising clients on their business space requirements, property investment choices, the managing and driving of their asset performance, as well as valuing their assets.
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).
She considers the undertaking of the Singapore office's leadership role as a significant career progression for her. Together with her team of experts, they have multiplied their profitability by six-fold since 2016, and the team continues to collaborate with colleagues across markets to deliver strong results for shareholders.
Having three daughters of her own that are coming of age, she understands her people's aspirations and recognizes 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!
