Yew Naksu, who founded the company came from an unlikely background far from the corporate world. Originally from a rural background of relative poverty without high education, he stumbled upon full-time professional fighting at a young age.
Yew became the first professional Muay Thai fighter in Thailand of Taiwanese origin, and to win a title belt. This became his stepping stone to getting fight contracts around the world.
Over the years, Yew amassed a small fortune through his sporting career but still led a down to earth lifestyle and would moonlight in part-time manual jobs for additional income. In one job, he chanced upon the automotive logistics industry and had an opportunity to learn the ropes of running a business.
After relocating to Singapore, Yew continued to make a living as a full-time professional athlete and an aspiring freight forwarder on the side. When he single-handedly built a small self-funded business from scratch, he did not expect the Company to grow into what it is today.
Tenacity, resilience and perseverance are some of his personal attributes in sports, and he carries them over to business. From a humble background and having worked his way up from the bottom, Yew believes in integrity, leading by example and favors a laissez-faire management style. His greatest passion lies in making social impacts and bettering lives.
The Company began as one man’s humble self-funded venture in 2016 under the name of Strike Global Pte. Ltd. to provide professional Muay Thai training and automotive logistics services. It expanded its businesses throughout the country in the year after.
In 2017, the Company was renamed Naksu Pte. Ltd. in honor of its founder and opened its doors for employment where it grew into a full-fledged enterprise. It also set up its first wholly owned subsidiary in the same year.
By 2021, the Company has fully transformed into a Conglomerate - a multi-industry Holding Company. Presently, it has 3 wholly owned subsidiaries operating in entirely different industries independently and also holds investments in other companies.
Intending to be an organization that gives back by contributing to social causes, the Company successfully registered as a Social Enterprise in 2022.
