Ling Kee Tong (Founder/Director)
Born in 1965, Mr. Ling Kee Tong founded Welton Property Sdn Bhd in 2012 and subsequently incorporated Welton Development Sdn Bhd in January 2013. He was in the real estate industry in the 1990s as a main contractor but moved on into the trading industry after the economic crisis where he traded commodities for five years.
By 2003, he saved enough money to venture into the lucrative bird nest industry and has been at it up till now. In 2010, Mr. Ling noticed that the real estate market is booming and had thus begun to gather funds to re-enter the real estate industry once more – this time as a developer.
Mr. Ling sourced amongst friends and professionals to locate the best candidates for his new development company. He knew that in order to grow Welton into one of the industry leaders, he would need not just strong finance but also excellent management from the team of directors. With his leadership ability, Mr. Ling is able to convince each of the directors, a leader in their own field of expertise, to join and grow Welton, with a public listing as the first milestone for Welton Development.
