Man of tenacity and integrity: Tan values Tiong Lay

KUALA LUMPUR: YTL Corporation managing director Tan Sri Francis Yeoh remembers his dad, Tan Sri Yeoh Tiong Lay, for the many values the late tycoon embodied – one of which is his tenacity to never default on paying his bills.

“He would never let anybody down and even when business was bad, he would still pay his bills. He never wanted to owe people any money,” Francis told reporters after Tiong Lay’s wake at the family home here on Thursday night.
