Mr. Yap has more than 25 years’ experience in various industries including Telecommunications, Security and Smart Cities Development. Over the years, he has developed specific skill sets that have facilitated Change Management, Investor Relations, Capital Market Operations, Corporate Restructuring, Profit & Loss Ownership/Responsibilty and People Management.


He is resident in Hong Kong, is a Singapore citizen and a former Army Officer.
