Dr. Alex Tan Siong Seng PJK DIMP born at the Klang
General Hospital in 1973. In 1980, he studied in Primary
1 at the S. R. J. K. Pandamaran B (without receiving
pre-school education). As he came from a poor family,
he often played truant because of untidy uniform and
socks as well as shortage of textbooks. However, he
emerged to become one of the outstanding pupils. From
Primary 4 onwards, he began helping out his mother
at the market and the night market where his mother
carried on her business.
After completing his secondary education in 1991, he was unable
to realize his ambition as a lawyer due to financial problems. By
coincidence, he took up a job as a Junior Advertising Executive
in Sin Chew Jit Poh, and he was the youngest of all the staff then.
As he proved to be outstanding, he was promoted as Senior Advertising
Executive after 9 months. He established STG Advertising in Klang
in 1992, an advertising agency providing one-stop advertising services.
In line with development and expansion, he set up various companies
in 1996, which included STG Advertising Sdn. Bhd. And City Flower
Enterprise, comprehensively upgrading their services, especially
in the advertising sector which has settled in uncountable clients.

crisis and Dato・ Dr. Tan's companies were not spared. They experienced
financial difficulties too. However, due to Dato． Dr. Tan's persistence
and confidence, he was able to overcome the crisis in less than
6 months and brought the company to a new milestone. In 1998, STG
Advertising was awarded the "Oriental Attraction" project;
an investment project from Hong Kong and celebrities including Jackie
Chan, Alan Tam, Eric Tsang, Anita Mui and Chen Xin Jian attended
the earth-breaking ceremony in Desaru. In the same year, Dato． Dr.
who had gained much experience in development projects and the housing
market established the STG Property Management Sdn. Bhd., and within
a period of 2 years, managed to complete more than 20 projects that
were delayed due to the economic crisis, to emerge as an outstanding
property management and sales company. To-date, Dato． Dr. is the
planning and sales advisor to more than 100 property development
companies. For his outstanding performance and services in the property
and social sectors, he was conferred the PJK by the Sultan of Selangor
in 1999 and 2005 he was conferred the Dato・ Shah Alam by the Sultan
of Pahang in Malaysia.
into the 21st century, Dato・ Dr. Tan had re-organized the companies
