Mr. Benedict Andrew Lim
Adjunct Professor, SUSS, SMU
Mr Benedict Lim is a grateful alumnus of CEE who has achieved recognitions in a plethora of diverse industries. Referring to the key highlights of his career, Mr Lim is thankful to NTU and the School for preparing and providing him with the necessary toolkit and attitude to map a path of professional journey filled with many challenges and successes. His incredible journey demonstrates clearly that the width and depth of the school’s curriculum do not just empower someone to be a good engineering professional but also to take leadership roles across industries even in the face of competition from professionals trained directly in those fields.
Mr Benedict Lim is currently an independent M&A advisor with international senior management and board level work exposure in US, Japanese, European multinational/global/sovereign companies, fund management and SGX listed real estate investment trust. He has been advising companies/family offices on their investment strategies. He is also currently an adjunct professor with SUSS for almost 15 years and in SMU for 2 years and has been receiving very good feedback from students.
Mr Lim holds an MBA degree as well as a Masters of Science in Real Estate, and he has previously helmed many top positions in leading organisations – such as Partner & Managing Director of EY Corporate Finance Pte Ltd (ASEAN Real Estate M&A Leader), Independent Board Director and Chairman of Risk & Audit Committees of Soilbuild Business Space REIT, Technical Advisor to EY Solutions LLP, Head of Investments (Director) of Global Capital & Development and Fund Director and Head of Asset Management for ING Real Estate.
Beyond his career achievements, Mr Lim is keen to contribute back to society and he led the logistics planning and execution for a mission of over 200 volunteers to Cambodia to provide support, resources and education to under-privileged children and families in 5 villages.
Benedict has successfully practiced as a civil and structural engineer before becoming a management consultant, followed by successful stints in asset management and investment management, fund management, corporate real estate, sovereign fund investment management and leading a regional practice in M&A activities before now focusing on providing insightful advisory guidance and adjunct professorship in a range of subject matter expertise. This demonstrates that CEE prepares one not just for a professional pursuit of excellence in engineering but across diverse fields as well.
