Enzer’s founder Boyd Au used to find breakfast a challenge
Sep 23, 2020
Boyd Au’s a fighter. And I mean that literally.
Growing up in Boys’ Home, the kids with the biggest fist and toughest knuckles got the thickest kaya bread at breakfast. He wasn’t always so lucky.
Fortunes turned in his later years. He founded electronics distributor Enzer, which listed on the SGX in 2001. It was then one of the more prominent home-grown consumer brand names. He sold his controlling stake in Enzer in 2007, and has devoted his time to religious work and developing budding entrepreneurs. He even penned a book, aptly titled ‘I Don’t Want to be Poor’.
For the record, no blood was spilled during my breakfast with Boyd. The only fight was over the bill.
