Tan Hooi Ling

Co-Founder & COO at Grab

Tan’s civil engineering father inspired her to study mechanical engineering at the University of Bath in the UK. After a year as an equipment engineer at pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly in London, Tan moved to consulting firm McKinsey back home in Malaysia, which eventually sponsored her for an M.B.A. from Harvard. There she met Grab cofounder Anthony Tan in the class of 2011. Although she took a job with Salesforce in San Francisco after graduation, she spent her spare time developing Grab with Anthony Tan, even using her holidays to go to Kuala Lumpur to build the team.
