KLK’s CEO, Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Lee Oi Hian was named The Edge Billion Ringgit Club (BRC) 2022’s Outstanding CEO & Value Creator in an awards ceremony held at Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.
The gala dinner and awards ceremony was graced by caretaker Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul Aziz.
In his welcome speech last night, The Edge Media Group Chairman, Tan Sri Tong Kooi Ong hoped the BRC awards will bring out the best in every Malaysian company and its management. The awards were given based on genuine merit, with its methodology and evaluation criteria being transparent, verifiable and independently audited. Currently in its 13th year, Tan Sri Tong also hoped that as the BRC awards continue to evolve, business sustainability will also be a factor in the future. This too, was a sentiment that Tengku Zafrul echoed in his keynote address especially in creating a more sustainable and resilient economy by embracing the environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles.
