Vincent Phang is the Deputy Director of the Physical Activity and Weight Management (PAWM) Department in the Health Promotion Board (HPB) of Singapore. In 2015, he formulated Singapore’s Physical Activity strategy and 5-year plan. As part of this plan, he conceptualised and implemented Singapore’s first nationwide Physical Activity initiative–-the National Steps ChallengeTM—to encourage residents to get more active. The National Steps ChallengeTM attracted unprecedented interest and participation among Singaporeans, PRs and foreigners alike. Mr. Phang is currently planning the second season of the Challenge, slated to launch in October 2016. Prior to his current stint in HPB, Vincent served 32 years in the Singapore military as a helicopter pilot, holding senior appointments in operational command, training and headquarters staff capacities. A fitness enthusiast and keen sportsman, he can be found running, playing soccer and squashing at various locations throughout the week.
