About Me

Soo Khiang is the Vice-Chairman of Royal Golden Eagle (RGE), which manages a group of world-class companies focused on resource-based manufacturing industries with assets exceeding US$18 billion and a combined workforce of 60,000 people worldwide.

As RGE Vice-Chairman, an appointment he held since March 2011, Mr. Bey oversees various aspects of RGE’s business management and corporate support functions across its key business groups in areas such as Environmental Sustainability, Research and Development (R&D) and Digital Transformation. He also spearheads the Group’s transformation into a LEAN organization that embraces continuous improvement while advancing knowledge management capabilities.

As former Chief of the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF), Soo Khiang made significant contributions to the transformation of the RSAF into the modern and advanced air force it is today. His continued success with the forces saw him eventually assume the top post as Singapore’s Chief of Defence Force (CDF) from 1995 – 2000, where he played an instrumental role in defence diplomacy by strengthening and expanding ties between the SAF and other armed forces around the world.

While serving as the CDF, he was also appointed as a member of the Board of Directors for Singapore Technologies Engineering and Singapore Airlines Limited.
