Comments from Maybank President & CEO, Dato’ Sri Abdul Wahid Omar
Maybank is honoured to be recognized for its innovative leadership in globalisation and I would like to dedicate the award to the board, management and employees of the Maybank family. With the strategic leadership of the board and the combined support and efforts of all employees, the Maybank Group has truly grown to become Malaysia’s regional financial services leader, with a network of over 1,750 offices in 14 countries today.
Maybank has always recognised the need to demonstrate innovation and leadership in our operations as we are competing with many of the world’s leading banks in markets that we operate. We have also been conscious that our expansion internationally indirectly helps in promoting Malaysia globally as a brand and we bear that responsibility very seriously.
I would like to thank the Malaysian Institute of Directors for acknowledging the innovative spirit of Maybank particularly in humanising financial services and giving enhanced value in our products, services and customer relationships wherever we have expanded to.
