SINGAPORE, June 23, 2021 – Singapore’s multidisciplinary design chamber, the Design Business Chamber Singapore (DBCS), today announced the appointment of its first female President, Ms Chee Su Eing. This is the first appointment of a female president for DBCS in its 36-year history. This, together with the reveal of its new logo and launch of its revamped membership model and mobile app, was also announced at its annual general meeting.
Ms Chee Su Eing, taking the helm as DBCS’ first female President, is the Founder and Director of D’Perception, the parent company of a group of full-suite interior design firms in Singapore and Asia. She currently leads its subsidiary company, D’Perception Ritz, which specialises in residential, retail and hospitality interior design, spearheading award-winning interior architectural solutions.
Leading up to her appointment as President of DBCS, Ms Chee has been an active juror for various international design awards including the Singapore Design Awards, Singapore Good Design Mark and Build Environment Industry Asia Awards over the past 8 years.
Mr Andrew Pang, the incumbent President of DBCS said: “Ms Chee’s appointment as DBCS’ first female President is without a doubt a monumental time for us. Her portfolio and wealth of experience in the design industry is very much in line with DBCS’ mission of using design in problem solving, and we look forward to having her pave the way for better business by design.”
“At DBCS, we exist as a multifarious design association, which not only rallies businesses and communities to drive better business by design, but also to be enabled by design to contribute for a social good. I believe and advocate that design is not just an enhancer, but in fact, is essential as an enabler in our day-to-day living. It is my hope that more people will understand and embrace design and elevate its status in the value chain of all processes. We want to establish this vision as the common thread for everything we do at DBCS”, said newly appointed DBCS President, Ms Chee.
