Fusionex Managing Director and CEO Dato’ Seri Ivan Teh was awarded the Technopreneur of Excellence 2017 Award at the PIKOM ICT Awards ceremony over the weekend. The coveted award was presented to Teh, in recognition of Fusionex’s achievements and contributions towards growing and supporting the ICT sector in the region.
The star-studded event was marked by an attendance of approximately a thousand attendees, consisting of industry leaders, talents, and budding stars in the ICT arena. The Technopreneur of Excellence award is reserved for individuals demonstrating ICT best practices; as well as to commend their diligence, commitment, and continuous innovation.
This award marks the continuous excellence exhibited by Fusionex, helmed by Teh, and follows Fusionex’s earlier win of the Company Excellence Award in 2016.
Teh carried the Malaysian and ASEAN flags up high when he represented the country and region to speak at the 2017 Belt and Road Summit. Held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center (HKCEC), Teh was one of the most prominent speakers, gathered to share their perspective and vision with thousands of business leaders and key government officials from almost 50 countries.
With Fusionex as a premier data technology player, Dato’ Seri Ivan Teh has also led Fusionex towards striking a strategic alliance with Alibaba Cloud, one of the fastest growing cloud providers in the world. Fusionex technology is also incorporated into the syllabus of certain local universities, to encourage homegrown ICT talent. Teh is a strong advocate for the nurturing of young talent, frequently encouraging students to consider ICT and data technology as a viable interest and career. He was also a judge for the Sunway University Dolphin Tank tech entrepreneur competition (by the Young Outliers) as well as Battle of the Digital Ninja event by MDEC held at KLCC.
Teh commented, “I am happy and humbled to receive this award. Accepting this in front of so many ICT friends, and colleagues reminds me that it takes everyone working together to advance the role of ICT in society.
I would like to congratulate and thank everyone from Team Fusionex who made this possible. We will continue to move upwards and onwards in our journey and mission to help shape this country and region in a positive manner with technology.” https://m.facebook.com/public/Ivan-Teh
