Executive director, Proof Living and Suitsupply
A skilled retailer, Yung Ong entered his family’s furniture business, before discovering his intimate love for interiors and design and becoming Executive Director of luxury furniture retailer, Proof Living. Initially his father wanted to diversify their office furniture supply business, which was how Yung came up with the idea of branching into retail. Now, Yung’s managing portfolio includes: franchises such as Crate and Barrel, BoConcept and Suitsupply. He also oversees F&B outlets like Acid Bar, Alley Bar and Peranakan Place. If his responsibilities sound hefty, they are. But, if you talk to any one of his more than 300 employees, you’d find him to be the ultimate boss.
