Lloyd Lim
Founder & President

Lloyd Lim has strong passion for delivering innovative products to the market and is dedicated to providing the best customer experience through SmartRentOnline. While working as a business consultant, he was traveling all the time and it was not easy for him to keep track of when his apartment rent was due and to pay it on time. He couldn’t find any existing service that would solve this problem. In January 2006, Lloyd decided to build a web service where tenants and property managers can pay and collect rent online. Lloyd was able to build a strong team with rich knowledge and experience in eCommerce website development and started Smart Rent Online Inc. in January of 2007.

Lloyd received Master of Science degree in mechanical engineering from University of California, Berkeley, with Management of Technology (MOT) Certificate.
