Far from Rangoon: Lee Chee Shan 1909-86
Biography of a well-known Singapore businessman, Lee Chee San, founder of the now-defunct Chung Khiaw Bank. Lee Chee Shan (1909-86) came to Singapore from Burma in 1929 to join his relatives, the Aw family and their vast Tiger Balm empire. This biography traces his life and career. A leading member of the Singapore banking world, Datuk Lee was founding managing director of the Chung Khiaw Bank from 1950 until its demise at the hands of corporate raiders in 1971. Datuk Lee's story is a sad account of a remarkable figure who exemplified the conflict between traditional, paternalistic "towkay" business practice of early Singapore and the more ruthless management corporate world of today.
