SBR Management Excellence Awards 2023 honours visionary leaders and inspiring teams in Singapore

Winning companies were recognised at an awards dinner on 21 November 2023.

In the heart of Singapore's bustling business landscape, where challenges are met with unwavering determination and innovation is the lifeblood of progress, true heroes emerge – leaders who not only navigate the complexities but also inspire, nurture, and uplift those around them. The SBR Management Excellence Awards, in its ninth year, stood as a testament to the remarkable impact of these leaders and their organisations on the very fabric of their workforce.

More than a mere recognition of growth and success metrics, the awards programme aimed its spotlight on the soul of leadership. The essence of the SBR Management Excellence Awards lies not just in acknowledging triumphs but in celebrating the profound positive transformations that these leaders instil within their organisations, weaving a tapestry of motivation, inspiration, and accomplishment.

The esteemed judging panel, comprised of industry luminaries such as Wai Keat Cheang, Partner, Consulting at Ernst & Young Advisory Pte. Ltd.; Irving Low, Co-Head of Advisory at KPMG Singapore; Roger Loo, Executive Director, Management Consulting at BDO LLP; Greg Unsworth, Digital Business and Risk Services Leader at PwC Singapore; and Henry Tan, Group CEO & Chief Innovation Officer at CLA Global TS Holdings Pte. Ltd. Their discerning eyes sought out not only strategic vision and talent development but also a commitment to keeping pace with evolving stakeholder expectations, fostering cross-ecosystem collaboration, and championing sustainability and social responsibility.

Greg Unsworth of PwC, emphasised the importance of strategic vision and talent development, recognising them as key indicators of management excellence. He underscored the necessity of leaders not only to steer their organisations toward success but to actively engage with the changing expectations of their stakeholders, showcasing an acute awareness of the evolving business landscape.

Henry Tan from CLA Global TS Holdings brought a humanitarian touch to the criteria, expressing that “entries that are into sustainability, innovation, and digital solutions would stand out. Additionally, those that could add value to healthcare, wellness, care for the elderly, and food shortage issues would create an impact.”

Congratulations to the winners!
