Board of Directors
|President & CEO|
|Dirk is President & Chief Executive Officer of the A2A group of companies. Dirk’s trek to the very top of his profession has been as hard as it’s been spectacular. From humble beginnings and with little more than his Cambridge certificate, Dirk started out by pounding the streets of Singapore in the only field he has ever known, Sales. The many obstacles he faced in his early years only served to fuel his ambition to achieve more in his life. It was during these challenging periods that Dirk honed his skills and instincts about business and the commercial value of his profession.
In 1999 he acquired a real estate company, Multi-Match Pte Ltd, focusing on the property market in Singapore. In 2000 he was offered the sales distribution rights to market undeveloped land in Canada from a then little known international company, Walton. Under Dirk’s direction, Multi-Match proved to be prolific in sales and within a year, in 2001, Walton International offered Dirk the opportunity to lead their Singapore sales division as its first Vice President of Sales. Inevitably, given Dirk’s perennial outstanding performances, he was elevated to the position of Senior Vice President of Asia Sales. Dirk led Walton’s entire Asian network to record sales year on year, and in the process laid the foundations for the credibility and acceptance of overseas land investments as an attractive and viable alternative investment channel. Without doubt, Dirk is a pioneer in this specialized field. He left Walton in December 2007, to take a sabbatical from the pressures of business.
Dirk’s expansive experience, his ideas, his insight and his instincts for the business of A2A will definitely help the company realise its grand vision.
