Description

A serial bootstrap entrepreneur, Andy is highly focused, farsighted and very hands-on in pursuing his passion and realizing his dreams on a global level. He challenges himself each and every day to create new business opportunities for his company and the community.


Andy possesses 19 years of in-depth knowledge in building ecommerce businesses that are centered around the creative landscape. The MBA graduate from the University of Hull had spent his earlier years in the UK working as the financial controller of Digital Vision where he learned about the stock photography industry and saw the opportunity to replicate the business in Malaysia, his homeland.


He founded Inmagine, a premium stock photo library in year 2000 and quickly grew the business internationally. When the industry shifted focus towards using more images at a lower price point in 2005, he seized the opportunity to start 123RF, a microstock library. 123RF has shown significant growth ever since, and is now Asia’s largest crowdsourced stock content library with more than 50 million images, 200,000 contributors, 5 million members and 44 office locations worldwide. In 2015, Andy ventured further, disrupting the creative industry by launching StockUnlimited, Designs.net and EasyDesign.


Andy currently invests in innovative startups to nurture the next generation of digital entrepreneurs. To date, he employs 600 talents across 20 countries and aspires to create a thriving creative ecosystem where content creators and business communities can grow together creatively.
