Congratulations to Mr Henry Tan, Managing Director of Nexia TS, Being Conferred the Nanyang Alumni Achievement Award by Nanyang Technological University

November 2016


Nexia TS is pleased to congratulate Mr Henry Tan, Managing Director, for his conferment of the Nanyang Alumni Achievement Award by Nanyang Technological University. This award recognises alumni who have attained exemplary achievements in their field of specialisation nationally, regionally or internationally, or have contributed significantly to the betterment of the University, the community or the society.



Mr Tan is the Managing Director of Nexia TS and the Chairman of Nexia China. Since the inception of the firm in 1993 founded by Mr Henry Tan and Mr Sitoh Yih Pin, it grew steadily in staff strength as well as in reputation. The duo initially focused on the niche area of helping SMEs to gain public listing. Twenty-odd years later, the company is now known as Nexia TS and is one of the top ten largest accounting firms in Singapore with some 220 employees. Recently, the firm was awarded the prestigious Innovation Award (Large Practice Category) under the Business Excellence platform at the Singapore Accountancy Awards 2016 and the Global Awards 2016 in Accountancy & Auditing (Singapore) by Corporate LiveWire.


Mr Tan’s goals also saw Nexia TS expand into China in 1997 and he currently serves as Chairman of Nexia China, an accounting network in China with more than 1,500 partners and professionals located in 23 cities. In addition to his work with Nexia TS, Mr Tan is also currently a Director of China New Town Development Company Limited, YHI International Limited and Raffles Education Corporation Limited. He is also serving as a Member of Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants Corporate Reporting Committee and Member of SQP Council of Singapore Accountancy Commission.


As a firm believer in paying it forward, Mr Tan offers both internship and full-time employment opportunities to Nanyang Business School (NBS) graduates, provided monetary support to set up the Nexia TS Public Accounting Corporation Scholarship and the Entrepreneurs’ Organisation Bursary Fund. As a member of the NBS Alumni Advisory Board, Mr Tan also advises the NBS Dean and other senior management on the School’s strategic direction. He has also been instrumental in setting up of the Nexia TS Public Accounting Corporation Financial Scholarship with most tertiary institutions, to assist financially-needy students.


 “It is indeed an honour to receive this award from my alma mater. Working towards building this firm was a long and tough journey, which was made possible with the dedication of our people and strategic partnerships. As a big believer in giving, it is my passion to help the underprivileged students receive the education that they deserve, especially under unfavourable financial circumstances. I have counted my blessings and as a student from NTU, for me, the best way to share this experience is to pay it forward.”

Henry Tan, Managing Director, Nexia TS
