Shawn Loh
When Shawn is not spending time with his family – raising three young and highly independent-minded kids – he tries to do other things that he loves: working with people and leading teams to tackle complex issues and make a large positive impact in Singaporeans’ lives.


Shawn is currently Acting Vice President (Singapore Businesses) and Acting Vice President (Human Capital) at the Economic Development Board (EDB). He spent the last decade leading teams in strategy and policy functions within the Singapore Government, most recently at the Strategy Group of the Prime Minister’s Office. Previously, Shawn spearheaded business innovation projects at Commonwealth Capital Group, an investment company with a portfolio across the F&B value chain from farm to fork. He started his new job at the height of Covid-19 and helped to launch a start-up on the very same day that a nationwide lockdown was announced.
