PIKOM 2013-2014 Council Members

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA, NOVEMBER 6, 2013 – PIKOM, the National ICT Association of Malaysia, held its 27th Annual General Meeting (AGM) at the Royale Bintang Damansara Hotel witnessed the election of the new Council 2013/2014 led by the new Chairman, Mr. Cheah Kok Hoong.

Cheah Kok Hoong, Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Hitachi Sunway Information Systems, has more than 20 years of experience across technology, business strategy, industry development and services globalization including policy development for various large regional conglomerates. His principal expertise lies in business process reengineering, strategic planning, IT direction and policy, finance transformation, system integration, IT & finance operational processes and supporting regional manufacturing operations.

"I am grateful for the support and trust bestowed on me by the members of PIKOM. Mr. Woon Tai Hai has been a supportive and visionary Chairman and led PIKOM to achieve many milestones during his two-year Chairmanship. Receiving the baton from him would mean a continuity in our current strategies and plans as I am confident that the 5-year strategic direction formed early this year is cognizant of the current and future trends," said Cheah Kok Hoong, the new Chairman of PIKOM

Cheah continued, "Malaysia is a country full of many potential and I believe technology plays a key role as a catalyst in realizing the abundant opportunities. ICT is especially key in enabling Malaysia to transform itself into a knowledge-based economy to achieve high-income status nation by 2020. Hence, together with the newly elected council, we would continue to drive the growth of the ICT industry locally and regionally in the coming years to help contribute to the vision."
