Yew Jin Teoh co-founded Carlist.my with Michael Leow in 2008 and was CEO of Carlist.my from inception until listing on ASX as part of IcarAsia Group in 2012. Yew Jin currently spends his time working with the core group from Carlist.my on a couple of projects although not on a day to day basis. Having funded Carlist.my from angel investors to raising money from Catcha Media Bhd (now Rev Asia Bhd) to listing as part of the IcarAsia Group on ASX, Yew Jin has first hand experience in raising money locally.
Yew Jin started his career with Accenture before leaving after 2 years to manage his family's business which was a Proton dealership in Sea Park, Petaling Jaya. The idea for Carlist.my came about while working at the Proton dealership in his futile attempt to sell cars online.
He is a graduate in Computer Engineering from Purdue University, which is where he met his co-founder Michael Leow and his angel investors who not only was gracious with their wallet but spent significant time coaching the Carlist.my team from it's infancy.
