GWOT 2016 Tan Su-Lyn
Tan Su-Lyn, 43, Co-founder and CEO, The Ate Group

A decade ago, Su-Lyn and her husband, Aun Koh, founded integrated communications agency, The Ate Group, with just one staff member. Today, her team has flourished to 20, and her company now counts Odette, Destination NSW and The Omakase Group (the people behind Omakase Burger) amongst its illustrious list of clients. This mother-of-two has also conceptualised, edited and published numerous cookbooks and restaurant guides, including Passion and Inspiration (renowned local Chef Justin Quek’s first cookbook), and The Lonely Planet World Food Guide to Malaysia and Singapore.

“Chubby Hubby started as a labour of love…
Through this blog, Aun and myself share our passion for cooking, travelling, eating and drinking. It lets us express our support for an industry that continues to inspire us.”

“I’m a brand catalyst for Singaporean brands…
We represented Singapore’s first international luxury tea brand, TWG Tea, for six years, from its inception. Building a proudly Singaporean brand of this stature is not an everyday occurrence, and it was a highly rewarding experience.”

“When you need to fight for the survival of your family, you’ll find a way…
I work to provide for our children, but often feel that work keeps me away from my most important job of being a mother. I’m grateful for a strong circle of women friends who encourage and inspire me; and who step in to help when I can’t physically be with my kids.”
