Meet the Team
Liang See Nam
Major shareholder, Managing Director and Co-founder of OPTSB and MOPP
The original pioneer in spearheading Direct Sales in Malaysia, Mr Liang mobilized direct sales teams to cover the whole Malaysia ﹘ from the Peninsular to East Malaysia ﹘ even travelling as far as the villages deep in Indonesia. A natural entrepreneur, he achieved multiple awe-inspiring milestones in his businesses with his creative instincts and courage in daring to dream. This is clearly evidenced by his incredible success of making his first million during his early 20s.
He was an active investor in properties for over a decade. With his natural knack for predicting upcoming market trends, he anticipated the inevitable burst to the property bubble. Hedging his bets, he decided to start researching the plantation market in 2012, knowing that it was just a matter of time before plantations emerge as a leading industry in parallel with the IT industry. After years of research and analyses, he discovered the answer in Agarwood.
