Tan Sri Dato' Seri Vincent Tan Chee Yioun (born 1952; (Chinese: 陳志遠; pinyin: Chén Zhìyuǎn; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Tân Chì-uán) is a Malaysian businessman and investor. He is the Chairman and Chief Executive of Berjaya Corporation Berhad, which is in a wide array of businesses which includes golfing, property, resorts, and gambling in a group known as the Berjaya Group.
In 2010, he entered the Forbes billionaire list with an estimated worth of US$1.3 billion (RM4.2 billion). Tan's success in the Malaysian business sector has been attributed in part to his close association with prominent Malay political figures.
In 1982, Tan purchased Malaysia's McDonald's franchise and in 1985 he bought Sports Toto when the lottery agency was privatised by the government. Tan obtained the license for his lottery business from an non-tendered privatisation in 1985.
Tan owns a controlling share in the UK football Premier League side Cardiff City Football Club. Tan promised to spend £25m to help Cardiff City establish themselves in the Premier League, and has publicly stated his interest in listing his 36.1% stake on the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange (KLSE). An IPO (Initial Public Offering) would sell shares in Cardiff City to the public for the first time, in an attempt to gain capital to expand the business. He is a big fan of the colour red and dislikes rudeness.
