About Ok Shen

Oh Kean Shen is a graduate from the South Australian Institute of Technology in Mechanical Engineering.  Upon graduating he spent two years as a factory Manager for North Malaya Engineers Trading in Butterworth, producing steel wire products, before he joined the family boat building and repair business. As a Managing Director of the family shipyard, which predominantly repaired government patrol boats, Shen expanded the business into patrol craft, building in GRP and Aluminium.

Shen had a vision to develop the pleasure boating business in Malaysia by importing well-known yacht brands and was instrumental in the formation of the Association of Marine Industry of Malaysia (AMIM), which led to a government proposal to remove import duty for pleasure boats.  Shen also had the opportunity to work with Professor PK Mukherjee (Deputy Dean of the World Maritime University) and Peter Gibb (Director General of the Cayman Island Registry), to form the Langkawi International Yacht Registry.

As a Managing Director of Pen-Marine, Shen has represented and sold Heesen superyachts into South East Asia and this led to a six-year position as a Branch Manager of an investment bank, owned by his client.

Shen was an Independent Director of a publicly listed company in Singapore (UMS) from 2007-2018, and in 2016 Shen formed Pen-Aviation with Jean Bernard Boura, to help their business clients with the sale and purchase of private jets and helicopters.
