Ms Chng is the Group CEO of JR Group Holdings, a one-stop solutions provider for the F&B industry with capabilities in food manufacturing, automated cafes, and corporate F&B management. Over the years, Ms Chng has won numerous awards, including ASME's Women Entrepreneur of the Year 2001, the Montblanc Businesswoman Award in 2003 and was selected by EY to participate in its 2018 Entrepreneurial Winning Women Asia-Pacific Program.

She brings a wealth of experience in the F&B space, having launched many highly successful ventures and growing JR Group Holdings to where it is today.

In reply, Ms Chng said, "I am honoured to be appointed to the Advisory Board of SMI Vantage and am excited to learn more about SMI Vantage's exciting projects. F&B is in the midst of transformation from being a labour-intensive industry, to one that leverages on technology and automation for higher productivity and return on investment. SMI Vantage's use of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in the Robochef concept is a good example of this trend in the F&B industry. I look forward to working closely with Mark, the Board, and the rest of the leadership team to capitalise on the many opportunities ahead and usher in SMI Vantage's next chapter of growth and success."

SMI would also like to thank Kevin Shao for his valuable contributions and advice to the Company during his time with us at SMI.
