Appointment of Deal Advisory Partner, Mun Siong Yoong

As Deal Advisory Partner, Mun Siong Yoong will oversee Baker Tilly TFW’s independent strategic advisory services on business-to-business transactions, specifically in the areas of deal strategy, mergers and acquisitions (M&A), valuation, due diligence, litigation support and forensic accounting.

Said Managing Partner, Sim Guan Seng: “Siong Yoong’s appointment is a timely one and I am pleased to welcome him on board as Partner. It is an exciting time for the firm, especially with the number of mergers and acquisitions in Singapore doubling in 2015.”

A Chartered Accountant with nearly 20 years of corporate and consulting experience, Mr Mun has advised government, private sector and not-for-profit clients across diverse markets and industries.

In 2015, he was part of the Baker Tilly TFW team that produced a high-profile forensic report for a real estate firm listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX). He has executed M&A deals in buy and sell side, valued multimillion-dollar projects and conducted financial due diligence across various sectors in East Asia.

Prior to joining Baker Tilly TFW, Mr Mun served as Corporate Finance Associate Director in an international accounting firm and was part of the team that divested Lehman Brothers’ commercial, residential real estate and debt portfolios in Singapore.

Said Mr Mun: “I’m privileged to lead the Baker Tilly TFW Deal Advisory team as Partner. We have spent the past few years strengthening our advisory services, and building a commercially focused and agile team. As such, we are well-poised to meet the demands of the market.”

Appointment of Assurance Partner, Guo Shuqi

Baker Tilly TFW’s newly-appointed Partner, Guo Shuqi specialises in assurance services. With over 11 years of experience, the Chartered Accountant has worked with top management on various audit and risk assessment-related projects. As part of the Baker Tilly TFW leadership team, Ms Guo will oversee work stemming from the firm’s core services, namely Assurance, and Capital Markets and Initial Public Offerings (IPO).

Said Assurance Practice Leader, Joshua Ong: “Shuqi’s appointment as Partner is reflective of the firm’s growth and in particular, a rising demand for our Assurance and IPO-related services. We are committed to developing a stronger leadership that caters to the diversified needs of our clients.”

Ms Guo joined Baker Tilly TFW as Senior Audit Manager, focusing on audit and assurance services. A highly versatile accounting professional and leader, she has worked with multinational corporations, not-for-profit organisations, SMEs and listed companies, and has developed broad industry experience across F&B, manufacturing, hospitality, entertainment and trading.

Prior to joining Baker Tilly TFW, Ms Guo held a managerial role in an international accounting firm where she was actively involved in IPO and reverse takeover transactions in Singapore. As part of these transactions, she project-led accounting work streams.

Said Ms Guo: “I am deeply honoured to be part of the Baker Tilly TFW leadership team. I look forward to working together with my colleagues to deliver high quality audit services that empower our clients to manage their businesses more effectively.”

Appointment of Assurance Directors

To further facilitate its expansion plans, Baker Tilly TFW is pleased to announce the appointment of Assurance Directors Zoey Zhou Ying, Soo Yin Ling and Lee Lei Kun.
