HWM (Malaysia) - - SMB - REPORT -

The Na­tional ICT As­so­ci­a­tion of Malaysia (PIKOM), af­ter hold­ing its 29th An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing (AGM), an­nounced the ap­point­ment of its new Chair­man and of­fice bear­ers, as well as coun­cilors for 2016.

For­mer Deputy Chair­man, Chin Chee Seong, was elected as Chair­man, and Ganesh Ku­mar Ban­gah was ap­pointed his Deputy. Other changes in­clude its for­mer Trea­surer, Danny Lee, who is now the elected Sec­re­tary.

Mean­while, the new team of coun­cilors in­cludes Stan Singh-Jit, Carol Wong, Christo­pher Chan, and Dr. Dza­harudin bin Man­sor.

The coun­cilors will serve for a pe­riod of two years, and will be joined by Jef­frey Ooi, Eric Wong, Ong Chin Seong, and Ivan The, who are serv­ing un­til the next AGM in 2016. Of­fice bear­ers who were elected, how­ever, will only serve for a one-year term.

“I am honored to have been given the op­por­tu­nity to lead PIKOM and ex­press my sin­cere thanks and ap­pre­ci­a­tion to my peers and all mem­bers who have given me their trust to helm the As­so­ci­a­tion. I also wish to thank Mr. Cheah for the strong foun­da­tion that he has left be­hind and we will strive to con­tinue build­ing on the good work achieved thus far. Cer­tainly, we will con­tinue play­ing an ac­tive role as the voice of the ICT in­dus­try. Given the dy­namic, rapidly evolv­ing eco­nomic and tech­no­log­i­cal en­vi­ron­ment, there is plenty to cover and we will hit the ground run­ning,” said Chin Chee Seong, the re­cent­ly­elected PIKOM Chair­man.

He added that in 2016, the or­ga­ni­za­tion will work on strength­en­ing its pool of pro­fes­sional tal­ent and re-launch the PIKOM Fair se­ries of events to be known as ‘PIKOM Fair 3.0’.
