Eric has a come a long way from the school dropout-turned trainee-land-surveyor on a daily wage of $ one. On his way back home one evening, he jumped off the bus to see another highway contractor at work. Within the hour, he had sold himself a regular job at a monthly salary of $ 100. To cut long story, in three years he became a General Manager at a local construction company. Two years later he took a flight to Kansas, USA and pursued studies all the way to an MBA in Marketing and Finance at the Wichita State University. On his return to Malaysia, he joined a large local group to head up Sales.
The youngest of seven siblings of an immigrant Chinese rubber-tapper in Malaysia, Boon is a classic self-made man. He literally educated himself working odd jobs… dish washing, bus-boy, waiter, sometimes several jobs at a time. After a year in Singapore as an engineering assistant, Boon collected enough money to land in the Big Apple. In New York, he juggled multiple odd jobs, to finish his MBA in International Business at New York’s Baruch School – where he bumped into Sri. Today Boon heads up operations for a large manufacturer based in Malaysia.
