Albert Oon: Self-made Singapore rags-to-riches entrepreneur

Our group Managing Director, Mr. Albert Oon, being featured in “The Independent” for his entrepreneur journey.
ALBERT Oon believes there’s no shortcut for hard work that leads to effectiveness. “You must stay disciplined because most of the work is behind the scenes,” says the 47-year-old Managing Director of Shun Zhou Hardware.

He has gone through the proverbial “blood, sweat and tears” and his rags-to-riches personal tale is probably one of the best examples of a Made-in-Singapore entrepreneurship.
