Sarena Cheah is an Executive Director of Sunway Berhad, the parent company of the Sunway Group, one of the leading conglomerates in the region.
The eldest child of Sunway Group founder and chairman Tan Sri Dr Jeffrey Cheah, she also serves as Managing Director of the group’s property division, and sits on the board of Sunway Real Estate Investment Trust.
The founding of the Sunway Group is based on the concept of sustainable development, when it transformed an 800-acre wasteland of abandoned mining pools into Sunway City Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s first GBI rated green, integrated township.
The land was rehabilitated and a whole ecosystem, physical and social, was restored in line with Sunway’s holistic approach to the sustainability agenda and its commitment towards making Sunway City the model smart, sustainable city of the 21st century. Today the group operates across 13 business segments including real estate, healthcare, education, retail, hospitality & leisure, construction and more.
Sarena oversees the next phase of growth in the continued development of the existing townships and the new expansions into the region.
