Motivation Letter

Although I have only been in Malaysia for about 15 months, I feel that I can positively contribute to the EUMCCI in terms of many important initiatives the Chamber will be driving forward. My role as the Head of the Wholesale Bank for Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia allows me to come across and interact with many key individuals/players of the Malaysia Corporate and Government fields. I feel I could bring my diversified experience and knowledge of over 13 years in the Financial Sector space to the EUMCCI EXCO.

Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia has been a long standing member of the EUMCCI and my predecessor also participated actively in many forums of the Chamber.

Finally, I would like to conclude confirming my commitment to the efforts and initiatives which EUMCCI has led through the years and look forward to a successful year for EUMCCI and its members.
