James Kang, Board Member of Alpha7
James was ex-Assistant Chief Executive at IDA. He oversaw strategic initiatives to harness infocomm technology to plan, develop, and implement the next generation of government. James started his career in 1984 at the then National Computer Board. He then spent 9 years in various director positions at Singapore Network Services, where he led the successful implementation of TradeNet, the world’s first nation-wide integrated network linking 20 government agencies and over 20,000 companies. James was also the Regional Managing Director for Asia in Trustmarque and Sterling Commerce. In 2002, he became Chief Information Officer and Senior VP of Customer & Technology Divisions at NTUC Income Insurance where he transformed the organisation’s IT operations into the world’s first totally paperless system with redesigned business processes, enhanced efficiency and winning numerous awards.

James Sundram, ex-MD International at PropertyGuru
James is the former Managing Director of International for PropertyGuru Group, Asia's leading online property portal group used by more than 11 million property buyers, viewing over 104 million property pages and generating over 500,000 enquiries for real estate developer and agent advertisers - every month - across Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand. Prior to PropertyGuru, James started and worked in a variety of companies. His specialization include strategy, sales and market development for SMEs and MNCs.

Cameron Priest, CEO of TradeGecko
Cameron grew up on a kiwifruit orchard in New Zealand. When he wasn’t feeding calves, he was building cars. Claiming from the age of 9 that he’d one day be the CEO of his own enterprise, Cameron set up several small scale businesses before establishing TradeGecko; born out of a friend’s battle to efficiently manage their supply chain.
Even though TradeGecko has scaled super quickly, Cameron remains highly involved in nurturing and growing every part of the Gecko family. When he’s not trying his hand at new adventure/water sports, he can be seen wandering from team to team in the TradeGecko office sporting a pair of loafers and an impressive beard.

Glen Francis, President of CIO Academy Asia
Glen Francis has over 20 years of technology experience and has served on a number of executive boards and forums. Glen enjoys creativity and innovation, and is well respected by his peers in the industry. He is the current Vice President for IT Management Association, President for IDeationEdgeAsia and President for CIO Academy Asia. He serves on two institutes of higher learning as their technology board adviser and he mentors several startup companies.
