Gordon Tang is a known Chinese business tycoon with roots in Singapore. Many know him as the non-executive director of SingHaiyi group, in which he also has a controlling stake through holding company, Haiyi Holdings. Along with Non-Executive Chairman Mr. Neil Bush (brother of former president George Bush) and his wife & Group Managing Director Mrs. Celine Tang, Mr. Tang has been rethinking and revisioning real estate globally. Today, the group has assets in the US, Singapore, china and Malaysia, and they plan to expand globally and have been studying European and Australian market. They already have a 9% stake in Australia-listed Cromwell Property Group, which promises enough exposure that SingHaiyi requires.

Long before they expanded globally, Gordon Tang and his wife had many investments in the Singapore real estate market. They have been investing individually in condos, strata offices and have units in Suntec City Tower One. Their company, which they manage with Mr. Bush again – Oregon-based American Pacific International Capital (APIC) – owns and manages many hotels under the now-known Haiyi. Some of the properties managed by APIC include Hotel Vertigo in California. No wonder, Mr. Tang is now looking forward to acquiring more, because that seems the way forward for offshore developers.
