Qian Li Loke

Director

Qian Li is our resident problem solver. His background as an Engineer makes him our newest confounding addition to the team. He is fluent in English, Chinese, Cantonese and Japanese and is infatuated with quality, efficiency and persuasion. This not-so-young man left his friends dumbfounded when he ended his days as a jetsetter managing international projects in Glory to join the team as the only Singaporean for one reason: (in his own words) “This team is going to realize immense social good across countries. It’s time to be part of it than to wait for it.”
He holds a B.Eng(Hons) in Industrial & System Engineering from the National University of Singapore.

Kosuke Matsumoto

KOSUKE’s gift for making sense of numbers is second to none. With this unique prowess, he has served on the board as the CFO of several companies to propel them to getting listed in the prestigious Tokyo Exchange First Section in as short as 2 years.
