Low Yat Group chairman Low Yow Chuan died today. He was 88.
According to a news report, one of his family members was quoted as saying that Low’s funeral will be held on May 12.
The group is one of the largest privately-owned groups in Malaysia with diversified businesses, including property development and retail.
“Headed by the chairman, Tan Sri Low Yow Chuan since 1971, the group has grown from strength to strength since its humble beginnings as a construction company in the 1940s,” the group said.
As the group chairman and managing director of Low Yat Group, Low had expanded the group’s portfolio of projects and businesses.
“Under his guidance and leadership, the group’s vast portfolio of projects was further enhanced. He had also achieved yet another milestone for the group through his vast contribution in promoting tourism in Kuala Lumpur,” the group said.
