Founder Of BookDoc, Local Entrepreneur Dato Chevy Beh Passes Away At 37
Not many people like to consider it, but there will come a time when people start wondering. What will we leave behind when we go? For some, the answer is simple. Memories. After all, men never truly die until they are forgotten. And we always remember best what people did for the world.
There’s no denying that the world will definitely remember Dato Chevy Beh. Best known for being the founder of BookDoc, an online and mobile healthcare platform, Dato Chevy Beh has given much to society. Unfortunately, the well-respected entrepreneur reportedly passed away recently at the age of 37.
Dato Chevy Beh was the eldest son of Dato Beh Chun Chuan, founder and chairman of the BP Healthcare Group. The young Dato Chevy first made his mark after graduating with a degree from Harvard University. At the time, he was working as an investment banker for distinguished American investment firms. However, he soon switched careers to help his father’s group instead.
It came as no surprise when he managed to climb the ranks to reach the position of Managing Director. Under his care, the group prospered. However, in 2014, Dato Chevy left BP. It was not a hasty decision however. Dato Chevy had set his sights on creating BookDoc with Joel Neoh, former CEO of Groupon Asia-Pacific.
An innovative platform, BookDoc allows users to connect with healthcare professionals, ensuring they have an easier time searching for and getting the help they need. It is available in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong and Thailand. BookDoc was also responsible for helping to manage the vaccine centre at the World Trade Centre Kuala Lumpur during the pandemic.
In addition to being dedicated to healthcare, Dato Chevy had a great love for polo. He shared this love with his kids. In fact, Dato Chevy once played against Prince William and Prince Harry when he captained England’s Under-21 team.
Currently, there has been no news regarding the circumstances of his passing since BookDoc’s announcement on Facebook. However, his wife and family are mourning the loss of Dato Chevy. Many have left their condolences via socials, including the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM).
