KL Tan

CEO
P-Asia Singapore
Church: St. John's - St. Margaret's Church (Anglican)

KL Tan's entrepreneurial journey began in 1995, following several years of working with foreign multinational companies. Despite having started attending church in 1957, KL eventually left the church due to his busy career advancement. At the pinnacle of his career, he launched his own business venture, but unfortunately, within 3 years, the business failed, and KL lost all of his money. His faith was tested when prayers seemed to go unanswered, and he quarreled with God. His business turned around only after he learned to unconditionally commit it to God and put God at the center of his business.
