Vicky Hwang builds on her family’s legacy and in turn, puts Singapore on the map.
Tasked to oversee her family business’ Singapore operations, one of Vicky Hwang‘s first acts was to transform a quiet lobby bar into Atlas, an awardwinning, talked-out cocktail destination. In doing so, she is also carrying on the legacy of her grandfather CS Hwang, the billionaire Hong Kong tycoon and founder of property conglomerate Chyau Fwu Group.
As managing director of Parkview Group Singapore and Chyau Fwu Development Singapore, she helps her family develop new projects here. At the same time, she is making a mark as part of the next generation of Chyau Fwu Group, which owns residential developments and hotels in Hong Kong, China and Europe. The Hwang family also owns Parkview Square, where Atlas is, and Parkview Eclat condominium on Grange Road. Although she declines to reveal specifics, she is now working on a space at Parkview Square that will pay tribute to her uncle George Wong, the late executive chairman of Parkview Group and a big lover of life, food, drink and art. He opened the Parkview Museum two floors above Atlas in March 2017, the same month as the bar, and passed away suddenly nine months later.
