With almost 25 years of experience in the travel industry and through his extensive networking and well-established track record in the business world, Steve Fung is currently the CEO and executive director of Safe2Travel, one of the largest homegrown corporate travel management companies in Singapore.

Safe2Travel is a one-stop travel service provider offering a wide range of travel products and services.

It has also grown to provide professional MICE and special projects services to its corporate customers. Fung is also the founder and CEO of SingExpress Travel, a travel agency which handles all facets of travel.

As a certified ISO 9000 quality assurance company and in order to stay ahead as one of the leading travel management companies, Fung and his management team conducts random checks to ensure that standard corporate procedures are adhered to. Market surveys are also conducted regularly to ensure that all products are competitive and service standards are maintained. In keeping with the new development in the market and growing demand of customers, Safe2Travel is in the process of launching an in-house online booking system, which allows for consolidated purchases and immediate confirmations which will add incentives for its corporate customers.
