Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay

Tan-Sri-Lim-Kok-ThaiBorn in 1951, Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay graduated in Civil Engineering at the University of London and is also a graduate of the Advanced Management Program at Harvard Business School. Tan Sri Lim is Chairman and Chief Executive of Genting Berhad which has a combined market capitalization of approximately US$35 billion, employing around 55,000 throughout Asia, Europe and North America, in sectors as diverse as leisure and hospitality, oil and gas, power generation, oil palm plantations, property development and bio-technology. He controls the third-largest cruise line company in the world, through his holdings in two businesses, Star Cruise and Norwegian Cruise Line.

The King of Malaysia Yang Di Pertuan Agong awarded him the prestigious Panglima Setia Mahkota which brings the title of "Tan Sri" in 2002. He was also presented with the Asian Leader for Global Leisure and Entertainment Tourism Award at the Seagull Philippines Asian Leaders Awards in 2011 for his significant contributions to the leisure and travel sector.

Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay became a majority partner in WIDER and a member of its Board of Directors in 2012: in December, WIDER announced a partnership with this distinguished entrepreneur who spearheads the Genting Group, one of Asia's most dynamic conglomerates, to acquire 50% of the shares in Wider Srl through his private holding company Exa. This provided for an increase in share capital, with the additional resources used in the development of the company's strategic plan including the growth of the Superyacht range as well as an expansion of the shipbuilding facilities. Thanks to the exciting progress made in the last two years by the Superyacht division, Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay has merged his personal holding into Genting Hong Kong Ltd, a leading global leisure, entertainment and hospitality company listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. Genting HK is part of the Genting Group, one of Asia's leading conglomerates, spearheaded by the same Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, and present in 20 countries around the world.
"We are delighted that Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay has shown the confidence to list Wider Srl as part of his global portfolio of holdings. We believe that this is not only a sign of faith in our products and future prospects but should also give greater comfort to potential customers buying our yachts. They can now feel even safer in the knowledge that their investment is secure when they buy a WIDER yacht." Tilli Antonelli
