PLUS is Malaysia’s risk management team of the year


PLUS Malaysia Bhd bags the National Risk Management Team of the Year Award at the recent Malaysian Association of Risk and Insurance Management (MARIM) International Conference 2019 held in Putrajaya.

PLUS MD Datuk Azman Ismail said it is an honour to be picked as the country’s top risk management team.

“This national level recognition comes after our regional win at the Asia-Pacific Strategic Risk Award in Singapore, recently. It is fantastic to be acknowledged by peers throughout the region.

“Winning the Risk Management Team of the Year is a huge testament that PLUS’ enterprise risk team has gone the extra mile to effectively implement risk management strategies, while adding value to the organisation, and most importantly, our results are measurable,” he added.

MARIM’s Risk Management Team of the Year Award was evaluated based on a two-tier judging process, which involves a submission of a comprehensive document prepared by the team and a presentation to the panel of judges — namely AirAsia Group Bhd head of business continuity management Bernard Lee (chairman judge), Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd GM Faizatul Farhah Ghazali, Universiti Utara Malaysia lecturer Dr Mohd Taipor Suhadah and Maxis Bhd head of business continuity management Raja Amir Abdul Hakem Raja Hedar.

The past winners for MARIM Risk Management Team Award were Malakoff Corp Bhd in 2018, Telekom Malaysia Bhd in 2017 and Kumpulan Perangsang Selangor Bhd in 2016.
