Tricor Group has announced new appointments for Dr. Veerinderjeet Singh as well as Ranjit Singh.

Tricor Group, Asia’s leading business expansion specialist and leading provider of professional services, has announced that Dr. Veerinderjeet Singh has joined the Group’s subsidiary in Malaysia, Tricor Services (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, as a Non-Executive Chairman of the Company, and Ranjit Singh appointed as Regional Managing Director of Tricor Axcelasia, the new Strategic Business Advisory entity in Tricor.

Dr. Veerinderjeet Singh’s tenure at Tricor Malaysia follows Tricor Group’s recent acquisition of the Malaysian operations of Axcelasia Inc., a SGX-listed company, and an integrated professional services firm delivering Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) solutions, corporate, business and tax services.

Dr Veerinderjeet shared, “Now more than ever, businesses are demanding integrated services of the highest standard to improve business resiliency and thrive against the uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic. I am excited to team up with Tricor because this partnership allows us to bring our services – especially our signature GRC solutions – to a wider client base and offers our clients in Malaysia and ASEAN access to Tricor’s vast suite of services. The natural synergies of our services and staff will help make this evolution seamless – and together our teams will help more companies steer their business expansion ventures in Asia Pacific and beyond.”

In his role, Dr. Veerinderjeet Singh will act as an advisor in areas of complex tax advisory, support business development, mentor executives and serve as an ambassador for the Tricor name and brand. A noted authority on Malaysian taxation, he is a frequent speaker on the subject and has authored numerous books and articles in local and international tax law and accounting journals and is quoted prominently by the local business media.

For Tricor, the acquisition represents the launch of a new regional GRC business focused on helping clients manage their increasingly complex regulatory and compliance responsibilities while operating in the emerging and maturing economies of the Asia Pacific region. This investment by Tricor is the first step towards building an integrated suite of GRC solutions that deliver enhanced value by providing deep advisory expertise with client-centric technology.

Speaking on the appointment, Yeap Kok Leong, CEO & Managing Director of Tricor Malaysia & Labuan said, “Under Dr. Veerinderjeet Singh’s guidance, we look forward to strengthening government relations, developing new business, enhancing our Taxation services and elevating the Tricor brand across our global footprint.

“During this critical moment, as companies face unprecedented business and economic challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic, Axcelasia’s premier services in enterprise risk management are even more critical to our clients. Under Mr. Ranjit Singh’s leadership of Tricor Axcelasia, the synergies generated by the addition of Axcelasia’s expertise to Tricor’s business in Malaysia will empower us to deliver robust integrated corporate solutions for our clients across Consulting and Governance.”

Axcelasia’s tax advisory services and its continuing membership of Taxand Global, a network of tax advisory firms in 50 countries, will enhance Tricor’s existing tax compliance services. In addition, Axcelasia’s corporate services and business support services has merged into Tricor Malaysia & Labuan.

The acquisition expands Tricor’s suite of services and solidifies Tricor’s dominant market position in Malaysia as one of the largest providers of corporate services to international and Malaysian corporations.
