With its 24-year legacy, The Entrepreneur of the Year ~ A Rotary-ASME Award is the oldest Award in Singapore that honours local entrepreneurs who have established and sustained a successful and profitable business.

Since its inception in 1989, the award has paid tribute to hundreds of local entrepreneurs who have demonstrated excellence and drive in their field of business, while making social contribution a significant part of their business philosophy. The award has since grown to become a prestigious mark of success that entrepreneurs aspire to attain, and a platform where deserving entrepreneurs are showcased nationally.

24 years on, the award continues to honour the crème de la crème of the local business community whose courage, foresight and determination have created and sustained successful, growing business ventures.

Apart from showing evidence of successful and positive fiscal performance, the judging criteria included two primary areas:

1.    Exhibition of strong leadership and entrepreneurial prowess
2.    Creation of a profitable, sustainable and socially responsible enterprise

PrimeStaff’s  Founder and Managing Director, Mr Ronald Lee, was selected as one of the Top Entrepreneurs of The Entrepreneur Year Award 2012 ~ A Rotary-ASME Award during the presentation gala dinner held on 31 August 2012 at The Ritz Carlton, Millenia Singapore.

The award was presented by Guest-of-Honour, Mr Lawrence Wong, the Minister of State and also the Minister of Defence & Ministry of Education.

Top Entrepreneur of the Year 2012 – Association of Small and Medium Enterprises (ASME) and the Rotary Club of Singapore

THEY have demonstrated courage, flair and focus in taking their businesses to greater heights. Yesterday, 13 entrepreneurs were recognised as the year’s top business people in the SME sector at the Entrepreneur of the Year award 2012.

Winners came from diverse backgrounds, such as human resource solutions, manufacturing, technology, property, food & beverage, and design.

The award, given out by the Association of Small and Medium Enterprises (ASME) and the Rotary Club of Singapore, is now into its 24th year.

Candidates go through a selection and judging process that includes site visits and face-to-face interviews to assess the entrepreneur on both qualitative and quantitative standards.

According to the organisers, there is an emphasis on a sound and sustainable business model, with social contribution integrated into the business philosophy that produces an enterprise that is profitable on both economic and social fronts.

This year, ASME and Rotary chose the pinwheel theme, which award organising committee co-chairman Stanley Low said embodies the entrepreneur.

“Its blades are the elements for success. As business challenges today stem from every direction, the onus is on the entrepreneur to ensure that his or her pinwheel will still be able to spin in today’s winds of change,” said Mr Low.

Kurt Wee, who co-chairs the award committee with Mr Low, said the current business climate is highly uncertain.

With global market forces and poor business sentiment set against the government’s call to improve productivity while reducing dependence on foreign labour, challenges abound for entrepreneurs, he said.

This year’s winners include Ronald Lee, managing director of PrimeStaff Management Services Pte Ltd;  Benjamin Ong, president and CEO of Alliance 21; Peter Ong, managing director of Building Resources Industries; Lim Yew Soon, managing director of EL Development; and Jovan Yap, managing director of Moh Seng Cranes.

The 13 winners will compete to be the overall winner of the award, which will be announced at the end of August. Five other accolades will also be handed out for categories such as innovation, social contribution and infocommunication technologies.

A new award category, Gen-Z, will also be handed out to recognise the efforts of technopreneurs or second- and third-generation businessmen who have taken an existing business to the next level.

OCBC is the main sponsor for the award for the 11th year running. The award is supported by Spring Singapore.
