THE PEAK Power List 2017 honours Singapore’s top disruptors and innovators

Singapore, 1 November 2017 – THE PEAK, Singapore’s leading luxury lifestyle magazine, tonight honoured 10 of Singapore’s leading innovators and disruptors in its annual Power List at the Grand Hyatt Singapore, in collaboration with American Express, Indosuez Wealth Management, McLaren, Dalmore and Ermenegildo Zegna.


Into its 4th year, THE PEAK Power List recognises movers and shakers in a specific area. Last year, it honoured philanthropists and social entrepreneurs, while 2015 saw influential women such as The Straits Trading Company Chairman Chew Gek Khim and DBS Group Head of Wealth Management Tan Su Shan lauded.


This year, the list pays homage to disruptors and innovators across different sectors. These personalities were selected for spearheading innovation in their companies, rolling out visionary products, demonstrating outstanding leadership qualities and holding a successful commercial track record. They include headlining names such as Fintech developer Wong Joo Seng, whose new forex trading platform is primed to put Singapore on the trading world map; Frank Phuan who democratised the use of solar energy; and scientist Rosemary Tan who rolled out the world’s first diagnostic kit that can identify several tropical diseases from a single blood sample.

The nomination and selection process was done by THE PEAK editorial team in consultation with a panel of industry leaders with experience and insight into start-ups and entrepreneurship. They included veteran Venture Capitalist Soo Boon Koh, Managing Partner of iGlobe Partners; Professor Wong Poh Kam, Director for National University of Singapore Entrepreneurship Centre; Biotechnopreneur Steven Fang, Co-Founder of capital-raising platform CapBridge; and Christopher Lim, Digital Editor of The Business Times.  


For over 30 years, THE PEAK has chronicled the success stories of the nation’s most influential individuals. It is an essential luxury lifestyle guide for business leaders and the diplomatic community to keep abreast of the finer things in life. The magazine is published monthly and delivered to the doorstep of Singapore’s C-suite executives and top-tier professionals. It is also available in a tablet edition and online at, with both platforms providing exclusive digital content.
