WeiLeng Tang

Managing Director


I am the Managing Director of Colliers in Singapore.  I am responsible for the growth strategy and direction of the business. We are an enterprising real estate service solutions provider – we are a team of experts advising our clients on their business space requirements, to their property investment choices and decisions, managing and driving their asset performance, as well as advising and valuing their assets.  

My expertise is Capital Markets. I have a wealth of experience in selling buildings, hotels and development land for nearly 30 years. Headhunted from government service, I sold my first office building at 20 Malacca Street at Raffles Place barely one year into my new role. That same relentlessness saw me through many more deals, some bigger others smaller.  I have developed a great network and invested in strong relationships over the years. People very often ask me, what drives you?  That inexplicable joy I see on my clients’ face when I close a deal!

These trusted relationships allowed me to successfully entered into joint ventures with both Capitaland and City Developments Limited (CDL) during my stint on the buy side with Wells Fargo (then Wachovia Real Estate).

Taking on Singapore’s leadership role is a significant career progression for me.  Together with my team of experts, we have multiply our profitability six-folds since 2016. We continue to collaborate with our colleagues across markets to deliver strong results for our shareholders. One of my key focus is to accelerate the success of our people. I mentor, nurture and help them become experts, and I like to see the next generation of leaders emerge amongst them. Having three daughters that are coming of age, I understand my people’s aspirations.

Colliers has given me tremendous space to accelerate my success and I like to accelerate yours too. Connect with me!
