Co-founder and Managing DirectorCompany
Henry Tan is the co-founder and Managing Director of Nexia TS Group. He began his career with one of the Big Four audit firms, after graduating from the National University of Singapore with a First Class Honours degree in Accountancy.
He later moved on to set up his own accounting firm with another business partner who had the same vision and saw the opportunity to carve a niche in the market. Previously known as Tan & Sitoh Associates, was one of the very few pioneer firms who offered IPO consultancy and advisory services for local SMEs and China companies in the early 2000s.
Henry has received numerous accolades for his outstanding work as a leader and entrepreneur where he received the Spirit of Enterprise Award in 2004 and more recently conferred the Nanyang Alumni Achievement Award by Nanyang Technological University. Henry is a Fellow of the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants, Insolvency Practitioners Association of Singapore, Chartered Accountants in Australia and New Zealand, Australia CPA and the Singapore Institute of Directors. He is also an Accredited Tax Advisor (Income Tax) of Singapore Institute of Accredited Tax Professionals Limited and a Member of the Institute of Internal Auditors.
With strategic foresight, Henry has not only expanded the firm’s footprints into the regional Asia but also added new businesses such as Technology & Cybersecurity, Business Digitisation and Data Analytics to complement traditional Assurance and Accounting services. Nexia TS Group has grew steadily and is now ranked among the top ten largest accounting firms in Singapore. The firm was conferred in various prominent awards under his leadership, The Inaugural Dun & Bradstreet Business Eminence Awards 2017, the Accountancy Firm of The Year in Corporate LiveWire’s Innovation & Excellence Awards 2017 and the Innovation Award (Large Practice Category) under the Singapore Accountancy Awards 2016.
As a strong achiever, Henry also firmly believes in paying forward by offering both internship and full-time employment opportunities, and monetary support to set up the Nexia TS Public Accounting Corporation Scholarship and the Entrepreneurs’ Organisation Bursary Fund, to the financially-needy accountancy graduates. He sees this as a way of encouraging growth of the accountancy profession and aid aspiring students to achieve their career goals. Besides as the Chairman of the Nanyang Business School Alumni Advisory Board, he also provides assistance to the dean and other senior management of the School.
