Wins for Singapore female leaders at RICS Southeast Asia Awards 2023
Two female leaders in our Singapore business have won awards at the 2023 edition of the RICS Southeast Asia Awards, showcasing our team’s talent and commitment to high professional standards in the Southeast Asia region.
The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) host various annual awards across global regions, highlighting the most inspirational initiatives and developments in land, real estate, construction and infrastructure. RICS recognises outstanding achievement, teamwork and companies within the industry that promote and enforce the highest professional qualifications and standards.
At the Southeast Asia Awards, Siti Norman (Director, Digital, Southeast Asia) won the Woman of Built Environment Award, and Jacqueline Huan (Associate Director, Singapore) won the Young Achiever of the Year Award.
See below for more details on each award recipient:

Siti is a seasoned professional specialising in digital transformation, Building Information Modelling (BIM) and 3D modelling. She is the current Digital Operations Lead for Standard Chartered Bank’s global programme management Office (PMO), leading the bank’s digital transformation for its capital property function.
