Jimmy Tan

I graduated from SP- School of Business with a major in Retail Management in 2003. After NS, I continued my studies with MDIS through part time learning and working for DFS in Changi Airport during the day. After graduation in 2007, I went to work in Beijing with a Chinese company listed in the US. I worked as a regional sales manager from 2007- 2010 with TechFaith Wireless Communication. In late 2010, I got transferred to TechFaith Group as their Investor Relations Director. In 2011, I took on the additional role as TechFaith Deputy Board Secretary where I am still working presently.

I was with the SP badminton team and was also part of the consumer club which was supported by CASE. I got 2 trophies for second runner up in SP badminton Men Open in the doubles category.

There are 2 lecturers whom I would like to express my gratitude. Mrs. Tan Chin Choo who taught me economics in year 1, thank you for your patience and enduring me for 1 whole year. Mrs. Sarah Lim for making her lectures and tutorials so enjoyable and willing to her share experiences to her students.

Do you have any advice for SB’s current students?

I personally think that it is very important to secure additional certificates such as CFA/ACCA (Depending on your major) and try to secure internships that are able to assist you in securing your future jobs. Don’t be afraid to try new things when you are young.
