Simple, yet sharp. That best describes Adrian Yeo.
Adrian's business acumen began early in life, growing up helping his dad run a sundry shop in Kuching. These humble beginnings moulded his personal values, teaching him the importance of giving customers the best while honing his skills with numbers.
In 1995, he decided the time was right to build a business of his own. He set up Adrian Yeo Consultancy.
Adrian took the real-world knowledge he'd already been armed with from young into the next level, by pursuing a higher education in accountancy. After graduating from Emile Wolfe College in London, he then stayed on to build a tax & audit career for the next 7 years in England, earning a Masters in Business Administration in the process.
Returning to Kuala Lumpur in 1993, Adrian was appointed team leader at KPMG Peat Marwick for numerous high-profile listed companies and multi-national corporations. In 1995, he decided the time was right to build a business of his own. He set up Adrian Yeo Consultancy, which then grew into Adrian Yeo & Co, three years later. Today, the company is an established name in taxation and auditing services.
Adrian believes in reaching out to society in a larger capacity, so he is an active member of several professional associations and alumni. These include positions such as council member of the Chartered Institute of Taxation Malaysia, the Chairman of Examination Committee of Chartered Tax Institute of Malaysia, the Secretary General of TAR College Alumni, and a former Chairman of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) Public Practice Committee. Adrian also served as an Independent Director for two listed companies.
