METRO Singapore
METRO as a brand was founded in 1957 by its chairman, Mr Ong Tjoe Kim.

Retail business under the stewardship of the late Mr Ong flourished and grew to become one of Singapore’s major department store chains. METRO Holdings Limited was formed in 1973 and listed on the Stock Exchange of Singapore that same year. METRO continued to grow its retail business over the years and later diversified into property development, leisure, construction sectors.

The group’s core businesses today are mainly in property and retail, which are focused on Singapore and key market regions of People’s Republic of China and Indonesia.

METRO Private Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary is the retail arm of Metro Holdings Limited, currently operates a chain of department stores and specialty stores in Singapore and Indonesia.

Recently in Singapore, it serves its customers through a chain of four department stores and six Monsoon Accessorize specialty stores. METRO Paragon, its flagship store located on Orchard Road caters to the well-heeled and sophisticated ladies seeking indulgence in beauty, fashion and accessories. Both METRO Woodlands and METRO Sengkang in the suburb and METRO City Square in the city fringe area are positioned as family-oriented stores.

Apart from department store retailing, with the extensive retail experience and expertise it has acquired over the years, METRO Retail has also gone into specialty retailing. In Singapore, it manages two exclusive franchise brands – Monsoon and Accessorize which are popular high-street labels from the UK. As a fashion brand, Monsoon is known for its exciting range of up-to-date ladies’ fashion apparel with an ethnic focus. Accessorize, has its beginning as a small range of fashion accessories catered to complement Monsoon fashion, but it soon became so popular that it eventually evolved into an exciting and eclectic high-street store concept for fashion accessories.

What began as a familiar household name has since grown and evolved over the years to become an iconic Singapore brand with a strong footprint in Indonesia. METRO Department Store in Indonesia is one of the leading retailers focused on serving the fashion-conscious customers with exquisite tastes. Until now, it has a chain of nine department stores, five in Jakarta, one in Bandung, one in Makassar, one in Surabaya and one in Solo. The METRO retail business in Indonesia also includes a portfolio of internationally-renowned brands consisting of Birkenstock, Monsoon, NICI and more.

As an established retail brand and a progressive retailer, METRO is well positioned to serve its base of loyal customers with its dynamic Customer Relationship Management and Loyalty Programme for both its card members in Singapore and Indonesia. Currently, it has four privilege and credit cards to cater to a wide scope of customers.

The retail business comprises four METRO Department Stores in Singapore and another nine department stores in Jakarta, Bandung, Makassar, Surabaya and Solo, Indonesia. The METRO shopping brand is a familiar household name in the region and offers a wide selection of fashion apparel, accessories, cosmetics and home items including designers and famous brands over 900,000 square feet of downtown and suburban retail space.

The retail division will continue to contribute positively with the four department stores in Singapore and nine in Indonesia seeking to show improved sales and profit contribution.

CT Corp is a rapidly growing, diversified Indonesian-based holding company that is active in several industries. The group is divided into three main business holding operations concentrating in Financial Services, Media, Lifestyle & Entertainment, and Natural Resources respectively. The group has established strongly-positioned companies in the consumer market, such as: Bank Mega, Bank Mega Syariah, Mega Life, Trans TV, Trans 7 and Mahagaya.

The group was founded in 1987 by the chairman and principal shareholder Mr. Chairul Tanjung under the name of Para Group. The business started originally in the manufacturing of footwear for export and roof tiles for the domestic housing industry. From 1995 onwards, the group expanded into new business sectors in the area of financial services, property and multimedia. It is within this period that the group gained scale and depth in respective industries and to build a solid foundation for future growth.

In 2006 - 2007, CT Corp was one of the fastest growing business conglomerates in Indonesia through aggressive acquisitions and organic growth of its core businesses. Two of the group's many achievements in 2007: Bank Mega experienced the highest growth in net income and credit cards amongst any Indonesian banks, and the two television stations (Trans TV and Trans 7) generated the profits that equaled the profits of the rest of the industry. CT Corp credited this outstanding overall growth to synergies between the group companies and efficient operational control that is embedded uniformly in the organization culture of the group companies.

In 2008, the Para Group name was rebranded to become CT Corporation. In short, CT Corp, is a brand that embeds Mr. Chairul Tanjung's name and character into the company. That is essential in contributing values of optimism and revolutionary leadership of the future into the company. In addition, this was a strategic step to reposition the group as a multi-national group, ready to expand into the region and other parts of the globe.

Looking towards the future, CT Corp is committed to continuing the tradition of growth. The group will keep developing innovative products which will provide more value to customer, bring in quality professionals and business experts, as well as establish strategic partnerships with investors both in Indonesia and internationally.
