At the helm of the Kuok Group, Robert Kuok presides over a conglomerate with diversified interests spanning hotels, real estate, and commodities. Notably, his entrepreneurial prowess gave rise to the globally acclaimed Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts chain, which debuted in Singapore in 1971, setting new standards of luxury and hospitality excellence.

Further augmenting his business portfolio, Kuok’s nephew, Kuok Khoon Hong, spearheads Wilmar International, a leading player in the agribusiness sector, in which Kuok holds a significant stake. Moreover, Robert Kuok’s youngest son, Kuok Khoon Hua, assumes leadership roles as Chairman and CEO of Hong Kong-based property powerhouse Kerry Properties, contributing to the family’s legacy of entrepreneurial success and innovation.

As Malaysia’s preeminent business tycoon, Robert Kuok’s strategic vision is to propel his enterprises to new heights, shaping the economic landscape of the region.
