DATO SRI SHERWIN CHEW
Dato Sri Sherwin Chew picked up his early business acumen from his parents. He worked as a computer technician and salesman of different industries during the early years. When the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis hit his family’s business, it left him with a strong impression of the harsh realities of the business world.
In his pursuit of excellence, Dato Sri Sherwin’s persistence and passion stood out. He decided to travel to Beijing to explore new challenges. During those five years, faced with financial breakdown and one of his most difficult moments in life, the vibrant economic and corporate financial activities in Beijing inspired him to found his own company, Potential Excelerate Group Ltd in 2012. Since then, he ventured into the capital market and honed his entrepreneurial skills by getting involved in private equity fundraising and investment activities via his partnership with global parties.
Dato Sri Sherwin Chew was interviewed by CCTV Chinese People Oversea Chanel 4, China in December 2015. He was the youngest recipient of Asia Pacific Entrepreneurship Silver and Gold Award in 2016 and 2017 in Malaysia from the financial management industry respectively. He was also featured in the Top Youth Malaysian ranks of ‘Hua Shang Ming Ren Tang’ (华商名人堂) in 2016.
Dato Sri Sherwin always preaches “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity’’ to his people. Dato Sherwin is also an active philanthropist since 2010 and established the Sherwin Chew Foundation that provides support and moral assistance for children and youth through social and community work.
